    Well theres a couple of incidents missing from those logs, a V2 hit a field in the district of Broxbourne Hertfordshire, and a V1 landed in the playing field of Tottenham Grammar School , at White Hart Lane, killing a number of pupils, there was a plaque erected on the field but its now a housing estate, and the plaque was demolished by bulldozer

    Dave, the listing was for South London, but I'm sure if you contact the site admin, he would be interested if he's expanding the database.

    There were several V1's brought down over a couple of villages/towns near me in East Sussex. One was brought down by a pilot tipping the wing of the V1 to disrupt its flight, the Belgian pilot Fl/Lt. Eugene Seghers was successful in bringing down the V1 but was sadly killed in the action when the pilot misjudged his distance and struck it, causing it and his Spitfire to explode. At first it was thought to have been a Polish pilot from one of the Polish squadrons based at Chailey.
