I'm glad we have been bombed

“I’m glad we have been bombed” is the famous quotation from Queen Elizabeth (Queen Mother) of the UK after the Buckingham Palace was bombed by Germany’s Luftwaffe in 1940. The eastern façade of Buckingham Palace was designed by British architect Aston Webb who also designed the Supreme Court Building (now the Legislative Council Building) in Hong Kong around the same time in the early 1900's.
