In St.Paul's Church are the charred remains of a Statute Book rescued from the House of Commons.

The handwritten note alongside reads:

This book of Statutes
was picked up by me out of the debris
of smoking Ruins the day after the House of
Commons was destroyed by
German Bombers which attacked at
full moonlight 7th May 1941
