Is there any case where a ring of bells were actually saved from 
destruction due to the fact that they were removed from the tower 
during WWII "just in case"? IIRC Southwark Cathedral was not 
damaged "much" in the war and St Magnus the Martyr, with the enormous 
benefit of hindsight would have been better off left in the tower.
