I am indebted to David Priddis for sharing the below images. David's late father, John Edward ("Ted") Priddis, was a warden in Clapham during the war and took the three photos. The photos show bomb damage to the Wardens' Post at Atkins Road roundabout and local houses. He was not on duty the night the post was hit.
Ted Priddis was an electrical engineer and his position was considered a reserved occupation. He was turned down twice by the Royal Navy due to his occupation. He moved from Clapham to Digswell in Hertfordshire and then to Bushey, near Watford, where he was in the Home Guard (photo below taken on steps of the St. James Parish Hall, now "Falconer Hall", Bushey). He travelled to Germany shortly after the war ended to assist in getting the power supplies reconnected there.
