Mount Pleasant and The Blitz

Between 7 September 1940 and 10 May 1941, London was bombed over 70 times as part of The Blitz. Like most of London, Mount Pleasant suffered significant bomb damage. Fortunately, the mail centre had been planning for war since 1937 and introduced its own auxiliary bomb disposal unit, a fire-fighting squad and prepared its underground network of mail rail stations as air raid shelters for staff.
