I AM trying to find the date that the bombs dropped at Soham Townsend. Two landed in the garden of my grandparents', Mr and Mrs AE Gammon, home and the third went into the flower bed of the house across the road. Luckily, they didn't explode.

If anyone has recorded the date this happened or, in fact if any photos were taken after they were dug out and made harmless, I would be glad to hear from you.

I also wondered if anyone has a photograph of an old thatched house that stood adjacent to the bungalow that is now being refurbished on the site. If you do could you please send me a copy or let me take one. I would reimburse postage and so on.
