    Default Trossy St. Maximin V1 target

    There is a very brief footnote in "Legend of the Lancasters" by Martin Bowman stating that the V1 storage site at Trossy St. Maximin was a "dummy" site.
    I have been unable to confirm this from any other source. Can anyone provide further info?
    Wishing everyone good health in these challenging times!
    Cheers, Clint

    Hi Clint
    In his book "Sledgehammers for Tintacks", Steve Darlow refers to Trossy as "a probable flying bomb storage site", although it seems like its precise use was unclear at the time.
    Stay well.

    Hi guys
    Yannick Delafosse has done some great work on this for the 576 Sqn project, and he reports the following:
    stores site (possibly a V1 dump) to the SE of Criel; German codename ‘Martha’; crossbow code: XI/D/8 - Z3247; position 49deg12’57”N, 002deg27’07”E
    hope that helps!
