The sabotaged bomb at The Greyhound

When I was living in Bromley, during the war I was staying with my grandparents in Sharpes cottages when a bomb dropped into the carpark of the Greyhound hotel and no more than 50 feet from where I was sleeping. It didn’t explode and was later found to have been sabotaged during assembly by French workers with ”bon chance” written inside the bomb casing.
I was probably four years old at the time of the incident.
