    a lost verb?

    The king and queen many several tours of Britain's bombed cities during the Second World War.
    >>I've read this sentence on the online cyclopedia, I just think it's lack of a verb indeed...
    >>do you think so?

    another one question:
    I'm glad we've been bombed. It makes me feel I can look the East End in the face.
    >>what does here I can look the East End in the face mean?
    >>in the face -->the war will be end soon?

    Yes, the first sentence needs a verb. The verb "made" would work.

    The second sounds like one of the Royal family commenting on the bombing of a palace. Evidently, the bombing was worse in other places. This allowed the King/Queen to share in the misery.
