V1 Black Decker Factory
My father worked for Fairey Aviation at their Great West Aerodrome after he left school in the summer of 1943. He remembers seeing a V1 flying bomb flying overhead when the engine stopped, and he recalls that it fell onto the Black & Decker factory on the Bath Road. Iím guessing that this must have been during the second half of 1944, does anyone know the exact date and the extent of the damage.
