As a member of the National Fire Service, Rosoman had first-hand experience of fighting fires during German bombing raids. He was stationed in the East End of London, which was especially badly hit. He explained that Bomb Falling into Water was ‘painted in 1942 when I was in the N.F.S. and was the result of night after night fighting fires in the London dock area - bombs were falling into the Thames and into the water in the docks.’
