  • Description

    Full title reads: "The Tragedy of Coventry".

    Coventry, East Midlands.

    VS. Excellent very moving shots of hundreds of mourners walking past the open flag covered mass grave of the people who died during the German air raid that wiped out the centre of Coventry. Good shots of people putting wreaths and flowers around and into the graves and of people being helped along as they walk past the grave.
