Many thanks and kind regards,
We have now included a filterable list of all the recorded V2 incidents here.
You can quickly filter the list by adding either a place name or perhaps a date (format dd-mm-yyyy) to obtain a list of incidents matching your criteria.
We are happy to include a new section of articles submitted by visitors to our site. In most cases they are descriptions of individual events described by survivors and or witnesses to the actual event.
To every contributor we send our sincere thanks and eternal gratitude.
Of course we accept that we may have made some errors and omissions for which we apologize in advance and we would be most grateful for any amendments and comments.
Update – The technical problems with the V2 Strikes Maps have now been resolved.
