The Bombing of the Petworth School

In 1942 a stray bomb hit the old boys school in Petworth resulting in the deaths of 28 children and 2 teachers. The school has been build by the third Earl of Egremont in the early 19th century in North Street, very close to Petworth House. Richard and Jimmy got to investigate this tragic event and look for the graves of these boys in a disused grave yard.
