Bombcon

Bombcon was an early convention held in London September 20-21, 1941. At the time, the convention was not named and was simply called a "fan reunion". It was held in the open in Lincoln Inn Fields (remember, WWII was in full swing and while the UK was no longer in immediate danger of invasion, the US had not yet entered the war and things were still dicey). Attending were Frank Arnold, Ted Carnell, Irene Carnell, Maurice Hanson, Art Williams, Canadian fan Bob Gibson, Harry Chibbett, Lily Chibbett, John Craig, John Beynon Harris, Ken Bulmer, Denise Laws, Lily Jaggers, and Sid Birchby.

The name "Bombcon" came later in an ad for Loncon, the 1957 London Worldcon.
