V2 on Laindon - 21st November 1944
Where did this happen?
I am carrying out research, shortly to be published, listing all V1 and V2 rocket attacks on the UK.
On the 21st November 1944, at around 3pm, a V2 rocket struck Laindon.
The grid reference places the rocket landing the top of Bridge Street, close to the junction of Wash Road.
According to the report, the rocket fell into the garden of a bungalow. Two properties were demolished (or damaged beyond repair) around 100ft from the crater. Four other properties were severely damaged.
Casualties are recorded as: 2 with major injuries, and 4 lightly injured.
I would be grateful if anyone can give more detail, such as the name of the property (and/or road) and the names of those injured.
I would also be interested in any surviving photos of this incident.
