Received a really pleasant surprise this morning – I recently requested copies of  document HO 192/728 at The National Archives as was suggested by John Pridige way back in September 2010 when they arrived this morning not only do they contain the copy of the Ministry of Home Security Bomb Census B.C.4. form containing the Damage Report I was expecting but there were also copies of sketches and map tracings detailing the area of damage but there was also a series of 10 photographs of the damage. For over 30 years I have been searching for just a single photograph!

You will find the transcription here and I will make a request to The National Archives for permission to upload copies of the photographs etc.

The addition of The Ministry of Home Security data contained in document AIR 20/4126 titled “Big Ben”: Enemy long range rockets: list of incidents, September 1944 to March 1945  held at The National Archives, Kew is now complete. You will find all of the data we now hold starting on this page.

We are now in possession of the larger list of V2 incidents produced by The Ministry of Home Security and will be adding our transcription of all the details soon.

This of course means that we are widening the scope of our site to all V2 rocket strikes and not concentrating on just the South-East, but our primary interest is still in the Panmure Road incident.
