PBS story on Glenn Miller features London Memorial photos

The photos showing the devastation at Sloane Court on July 3, 1944 are remarkable.

And, as it turns out, hard to find anywhere else.

Oregon Public Broadcasting producers contacted London Memorial last year requesting to reuse the signal corps photos, explaining that they seemed to be available only from LondonMemorial.org.  Two of the photos were featured today on the latest PBS History Detectives segment, “The Disappearance of Glenn Miller.”

Glenn Miller, the band leader who went missing at the end of 1944, was stationed at Sloane Court up until July 2, 1944.  A V-1 flying bomb would kill more than 65 American servicemen the next day.
