The Second World War 1939 – 1945

During the war a number of German V1/V2 Flying bombs hit civilian targets in the area of Smarden. It is thought (at this time) that the vast majority of Second World War casualties listed on the village war memorial are civilians who were killed by enemy action in one of these raids. Further research is required.
