Occasionally you come across interesting photos in obscure records that probably not many people have seen before. I came across these the other day by accident while looking for other stuff in file HO 196/30 - Ministry of Home Security: Research and Experiments Department, Notes. They were apparently taken on the beach at Clacton-on-Sea. The first one pretty well sums up the air war in England at that time – A V2 Rocket crater, with Allied bombers above, no doubt returning from a raid. Don’t know if the building is still there but if anyone knows that area and could take a modern day comparison photo, it would make interesting viewing! Wonder if there are still pock marks to be seen after all these years? Here is the rest of the info and photos.
