Church service marks Clydebank Blitz anniversary

by Gillian McPherson

A CHURCH service is being held in Clydebank to mark the 76th anniversary of the Blitz.

Over 200 German bombers attacked the town during one of the most intense Luftwaffe raids of World War II.

The bombings devastated Clydebank, leaving only seven houses undamaged and killing 528 people.
