Notes / History These houses and shelters on the St Helier Estate were flattened by a flying bomb or doodlebug.

As World War II progressed, more and more of these terrifying weapons fell on Britain. People grew used to listening out for the distinctive drone of the doodlebug engine, because they knew when it cut out, the bomb would land with devastating impact.
