Thanks Geoff , you beat me to it with posting about this amazing site which I have today spent several hours exploring. It will be of great value to those researching families living and working in greater London during WW2. You can look at the map street by street, and realise the close proximity to the homes comcerned. My grandparents lost windows and tiles on numerous occasions and were fortunate not to sustain a direct hit. For those without direct connections with London please have a look and see just how devastating the London Blitz was

Thanks for that Dochines.

Our house in Teddington lost all its front glass during the war and my grandparents not only lost their whole house, but the whole street itself one night.
They had gone to the pictures and when they returned, no house, no street, but they were at least alive.
