This month's Enfield Dispatch carries a report and photograph of a rocket attack on Palmers Green station. And a photo of this month's Enfield Community Hero thigh-deep in water, also in Palmers Green. The rocket attack was, of course, during World War II, and the line was back in service two days later  (how many weeks would it take these days?), while the hero is Alison Archer, co-founder of the Pymmes BrookERS, helping plant out the Broomfield Park wetlands.

Some street chatter as a result of this article says the bomb blast took the roof off 2 Old Park Road, which landed on and killed a pedestrian. The bomb itself apparently hit the track behind numbers 18 and 20, with a piece of track ending up in the roof of number 18. From my own time living in Grovelands an elderly neighbour (west side) talked of how a piece of rail went through her glass front door.
