The grid has been sorted into descending death per missile order . The higher death rates can be seen to be generally in the inner areas
further out into the suburbs the death rate declined. This somewhat vindicates the governments policy of encouraging the Nazis to
reduce their aim through false intelligence. At the time Herbert Morrison is quoted as saying "who are we to play God" but it would
seem like a case of grim practicalities and the policy saved lived. So for example West Wickham a suburban area had 14 V1's and a
casualty (deaths ) rate of 0.71 per missile. However a tightly packed in urban area, for example Borough & Bermonsdey which
suffered 25 missiles had a casualty rate of 7.96  per missile
