It is fortunate that 4 of the V1's and 1 V2 fell on Clapham Common thus minimising the risk of casualties. It is also
interesting conjecture that the first 3 V1's on the Common fell over a 4 day period perhaps indicating that the Nazi's aim was
better than some pundits have indicated. They may have been aiming at the wrong spot but they seem to have been quite
accurate in their aim. T
he Kepler Road/Sandmere Road area on the Brixton border was hit by two V1's and suffered major
damage. The extent of this can clearly be seen today by the extent of the post war housing development in this
neighbourhood. The area endured 2 V2's one on the
Common which caused major damage in the High Street and the
Pavement and a second in Rodenhurst Road which again devastated the area. There are no recorded casualties from either of
these rockets which is surprising when the extent of damage is considered,particularly at Rodenhurst Road.
