This is a picture taken in London during the second world war in 1940 and it shows The American Ambassador at the time, Joseph Kennedy, (father of President John F Kennedy) talking to a group of barrage balloon operatives after an air raid and discussing the bomb damage with them. He then flew to America to report directly to President Roosevelt. Do you know any of these men? Do you remember this incident? They certainly seem pleased to meet him and one can assume he was doing the politicians job of saying encouraging things to them.
