What a fantastic map. Looks like the sports ground and Endymion Rd had a high explosive bomb, and I think we still have some original pre war glass in our windows so this is really amazing.

Slightly scary to see the bombs that left my house at the Ducketts end of Frobisher needing major surgery in 1946. It also left the bomb site that later developed into two 50s houses. The stick pattern from the Heinkel and Dornier bombers (mostly) is also visible. They were of course aiming for the sidings - good job the Germans never developed a heavy bomber as the sticks would have been longer....
