The Glue That Keeps The School Together

, , , , | Learning | May 1, 2018

My grandad told me that during the war, they were using the hall in his school as a temporary warehouse for thousands of sacks of flour. The Luftwaffe firebombed it one night and the fire brigade quickly sprayed it with water, not knowing what was inside.

Of course, when you mix flour and water, you get glue, which flowed all over the corridors and the playground before setting. They still hadn’t cleared it up years later.
