    Not sure why the photos you attached didn't show up, would have liked to have seen them though.

    Also, this line: "In 1941, a German land-mine left much of the building a roofless ruin once more" are they saying the land mine that damaged the roof was dropped from a bomber?

    Was another pub in East Cardiff that you could buy items they don't sell in shops.

    That's my understanding. You can see where it landed. It's on the Llandaff [as opposed to the river] side of the cathedral not too far from the lane running down the hill.

    I didn't know they were dropping land mines from planes :hehe: Were they short of bombs?

    Neither did I until I saw the commemoration at the cathedral! I believe that both sides used to drop heavy objects as well as bombs from planes. I'm guessing a landmine would do some damage dropped from height but with the added 'bonus' that it might explode on impact or thereafter.

    I think Cardiff was low priority for bombing compared to London, Liverpool, Coventry, Swansea etc so they probably didn't want to 'waste' too many bombs on us.

    I know when planes were first used in warfare in WW1 they used to drop heavy bricks onto each other from their bi-planes :hehe: They were mostly used for reconnaissance then though but it surprises me that they took the effort to fly landmines from Germany to drop on targets here.
