    No.13 on the map in the link above came down on Christmas Eve 1944 in fields near the Shropshire town of Newport, not far from me. Casualties were a rabbit (which was eaten) and a frog (which was not). Some rusty old bits of the bomb are lying around Cosford museum somewhere but I can't remember where now, probably in the storage hangars.
