H.A.R. Dunsheath of Oakville, Ont., recounts that when the V-2 rockets started falling on London in the fall of 1944 they were explained away in the press as gas-main explosions. Mr. Dunsheath continues:

One morning on the way to HQ, I climbed aboard a double-decker bus. It had just started up when a V-2 landed close enough to rock it severely. The driver pulled back to the curb and stopped amid deep silence, broken at last when a cockney voice sounded from a front-seat: “Aow! I wish the city would fix them gas mains.”
