Although D-Day and the subsequent invasion of Normandy had been a success, the bombing of Portsmouth still went on.
But it was not in the conventional sense with the use of aircraft.
Six days after D-Day, the Germans launched the first of many V-1 flying bomb attacks against Britain.
These were indiscriminate terror weapons designed to create panic among the populace.
Two of these weapons fell on Portsmouth: the first in Locksway Road, Milton, (right) and the second in Newcomen Road, Stamshaw, (below), killing 15 people and injuring 82 others.
