On the morning of Wednesday June 13 1917 a dozen or so three-seater bombers carrying shrapnel bombs arrived over london and killed 104 people.
Sixteen of the dead were 5 and 6 year olds, in their classroom at Upper North Street School, Poplar.

'The sun had been shining, and then it seemed to go out in a roar of thunder.'

What happened next.
