          The link worked at first for me - we do already have one for London in the Reference Library, not sure if this is an updated version or not and no time to check at the moment.

          UPDATE: This new link uses Flash and so may come up blank and won't work at all after Dec 2020!

              Worked on PC. Looks interesting but I only found basic information about each event. I guess you then have a date to look in newspapers or CWGC anyway.

              Edit to say. Yes, with the date of the bombing I was able to find (on CWGC) the civilian who died in our village in 1943. Poor bloke must have thought he was pretty safe in rural Cumberland.

                I cross referenced Stockton with what is on our Heritage site and it is not accurate, Take 19th June 1941 for example, this link says that no one was killed or injured and yet our records show that 2 Soldiers were killed. I also know that my own Grandmother was one of those injured by shrapnel as a toddler and she still had the scar on her neck the day she died. https://heritage.stockton.gov.uk/art...ckton-1940-43/ (Apologies if I'm not allowed to include the link)

                I am the girl from that town & I'm darn proud of it.

                  Thanks, Sylvia. It shows that bombing was much closer to my village than I realised (rural area just north of Reading). We have my grandmother's 1943 diary and she mentions bombing in Reading that year.

                    I well remember the bomb that landed near my house on that Christmas Eve .... I was 4 years old.

                    I managed to find access to documents, but not the map.
