V2 Rocket Hatley Ave - a Memory of Barkingside.
I was at Gearies when the rocket fell in Hatley Ave. We lived at no 9 and it was on a Monday (washing day) and the replacement windows that we had(because they were blown out when the V1 dropped in Dr Barnardos behind us) fell on my mum in the kitchen. She was not hurt because they were not glass.
I understand that the V2 fell on the back door step of the house in our Ave and the lady there was hanging out the washing at the time and all they found I believe her only hand.
