3. Images of the Bombardment.

6. The German Ships Only 6 ships stayed to shell Hartlepool The ships were called Blutcher, Seydlitz, Moltke, Derfflinger, Tapken, and Kolberg The boss was called Admiral Von Ingenohl The Germans came across the North Sea to get to Hartlepool, Scarborough and Whitby The Germans came from Cuxhaven By Liam Wildberg

7. Liam Wildberg age 11, 1914 I was on my way to Ward Jackson School. I saw many people rushing about. I wondered what all the fuss was about. All of a sudden I saw 3 or 4 soldiers running down Lynn Street with big guns. So I started running and all of a sudden a big bomb went off. Sadly it was my school that was bombed. That night I sat at home and thought that I could have been in that school. But then I thought I was been a bit selfish and I said to myself what about all the poor kids that died. The next day I found out that my best mate survived the attack but the hospital said they will have to chop his leg off. From that day on I loved and took care of him. Now he is in a care home but he goes to the Havelock centre to cheer him up. But the weird thing is, the centre is built right near Lynn street.
