My grandmother Rose BURGUM ran the pub with her husband Whit Burgum and they had three sons, including my father John. They moved there after they were bombed out of their previous pub, the Five Bells and Bladebone in Three Colt Street, Poplar. During the bombing my grandparents would go to the cellar, re-enforced with railway sleeps. After a night of heavy bombing my father, then age 15, returned to his bedroom. To his astonishment he could see blue sky where his ceiling had been and a tree from Poplar Church opposite had fallen into the house, cutting his bed in half! His room was littered with hundreds of dead birds, which had presumably been sleeping in the tree! *
