Royal Arsenal, Woolwich - a Memory of Woolwich.

My grandmother worked as a nurse at the Royal Arsenal and was killed by a V1 flying bomb on July 27th 1944; she was in the Taylors shop at the time. 4 killed and 73 wounded. Unfortunately Daisy swopped duty with another that day - fateful day. I am looking for any information about that day or in fact any information or photos of this place. I would be most grateful.

My Grandfather worked at the Woolwich Arsenal during WW1. According to legend, he was a watch repairer by trade and was put to work making bomb sights. He was so quick at his work his colleagues sent him to coventry!
