Sorry to jump in on your thread but I would also like to know about the bombing of Rosedale Road.
Am sure I read some where that there is a map showing bomb strikes in Tranmere/Rock Ferry & Birkenhead.
Have never been able to find it though

What do you need to know? My family lived in 15, 16 and 30. No bombs actually hit Fieldside, a landmine went off at the back of 15 and took out the houses on Old Chester road near the Rockville. The entry on the odd number side was blown out and full of rubble. My Nan was talking to someone at the front of number 15 when the mine went off and was found battered and bruised in her underwear but no broken bones, by the bin in the backyard of the house. Nobody ever worked out how this happened.
If you search this site, you will find a photo of the street that I put on when it was being constructed. It was taken before numbers 2 to 34 had been built.

I think i remember someone telling me that a bomb landed on 2 houses in inglemere Rd. I was told it landed at the junction of inglemere rd & what is now Clarke Ave. The houses were cleared to make way for clarke ave to be built. My mate lived in the house on the very corner of this junction & i live in Fieldside Rd. The enterance to clarke ave from inglemere looks about 2 house widths wide. Not sure how true the bomb story was but maybe this one & rosedale could be linked to the same bombing raids.

TO CAMERAMAN: Great pic of fieldside Rd c1923, you can see why it was named fieldside. Did you notice the lady @ No5 & the girl halfway up the St. The cobbled stones are still there now. Do you have the original photo. Just noticed the 3 white ball shapes in a triangle above the rooftops on lefthand side of pic. Is this just old camera photography?

Still got the original, It was taken by Charlie Woodfin , my great Grandfather as he was one of the first people to move into the road when they were built. Billy and his wife Betty (My Grandmother and Grandfather moved into 15 when they got married and my Dad was born in 15. They moved to number 16 after the war as the house was larger and when my Dad married they bought number 30, so you could say that the Woodfin's have always lived in Fieldside road.
My late father used to tell me stories of playing in the area during the war and some of the things he used to get up to and where all the bombs dropped. He remembers getting chased by the police when he was getting the glass out of a heinkel or junker bomber that crashed where the old Rock Ferry library used to be at the corner of Grove road and remembered watching the emergency services recovering all the bodies from opposite the Fairfield Pub after a house that was having a party in it was hit by a land mine.

There's a good exhibit of the Wirral bomb damage and various artefacts at Fort Perch Rock, well worth a visit and a browse. There is lots of other good stuff from around the area as well.
