Dad's first pub was an ale house on the corner of Lafone Street and Gainsford Street SE1 which is near the docks in London. It was always known as The Roody-Doo but I know that was not the official name, which may have been The Bricklayers Arms.
The second pub was The George and Dragon in Camberwell Road, London.
The third pub was The Enterprise in Blenheim Road (renamed Bavaria Road) Holloway, north London.  I believe a bomb fell very close to the pub and we were blasted out.
The last pub was The Freemasons Arms which was in Hillingdon Street between Farmers Road and Warham Road. I remember living there and my younger brother was born in this time. On 25th June 1944 a V1 rocket landed on the doorstep demolishing the whole building. We were all sleeping in the cellar, father , mother, brother, aunt and me. Luckily for us the steel RSJs supporting the roof of the cellar prevented the building actually falling on us. My father was unconscious as the till from the bar above had fallen on him and was sticking in his head. The steelwork kept the rubble about 1 foot from us and saved our lives. Eventually, I don't know how long, we were pulled feet first from the debris and my dad was taken to hospital, the only casualty in the pub.
I discovered that in that raid 23 people died, 50 houses, 1 pub and 4 shops were destroyed. In five streets in an area of 500 yards 100 houses were severely damaged. *
