Nessie Killed By The Nazis
During the beginning years of World War II, the Germans executed many air raids on the United Kingdom. Called “The Blitz” by members of the Allied powers to describe the German tactic of Blitzkrieg meaning “lightning war” which involved many air raids and bombings of the United Kingdom. It was reported in 1941 that Nessie had been killed during one such air raid. This troubled and angered the Scottish who viewed Nessie as a national icon. It wasn’t until August of 1941 that she was spotted swimming in the Loch which relieved the Scottish who now knew that Nessie would live on to fight another day.
