Yup , turns out HMS Eastbourne was actually damaged beyond economical repair as a consequence .

I was hoping this was a typo and we'd be having a Cod War GB

And I could do aircraft from the Agriculture , Fisheries and Food special services squadron , Grimsby division.

Wasn't the Cod War a real one between Iceland and the rest of the world?

Disappearing guns, or is it more accurately disappearing carriages ?, have always fascinated me. I've seen some great footage at museums and in documentaries over the years.

Interesting.
Not easy to search though unless you know the geography.

Very much so. I struggled a bit and I know the geography, certainly south of the Thames anyway. It just confirmed some things I knew and taught me some things I didn't  :thumbsup: It's amazing how many hits Upper Norwood, where I live, had. No strategic targets around here I can think of. Also the area where I was born in Croydon was badly hit, but that had all the industries associated with the old airport so was "fair game" so to speak.

Be interesting to see if they expand it to include the latter raids and then the V1 and V2 hits. I'm certain our favourite playground as kids was a V1 hit.

I've seen a WWI version of this as well in a book, not on line unfortunately. And one Zepelin pilot followed the A23 up from Brighton to London dropping a bomb every few miles or so. Just as accurate as some of these  ;)

I am confident we are close to a settlement...

Yup having been party to the discussion, purely with a "watching" brief  I think our Honourable Mods are there, just a matter of the final words.
