12.5" CROSSLEY V-1 FLYING BOMB DOODLEBUG

 The V-1 Flying bomb (German: Vergeltungswaffe or "Vengeance weapon) was also known as the "buzz bomb". It was, in effect, an early cruise missile.  The first doodlebug flying bomb to target London, crashed and exploded at Grove Road near Mile End Park in East London. These sinister weapons became known for their distinctive sound followed by 15 seconds of eerie, menacing silence before the detonation of 2000 lb of explosives.
