Appendix 32: Night Attacks on London: Numbers of High-explosive Bombs to the Hundred Acres on some of the most Heavily-bombed Boroughs

NOTE: The following list is based on British records of the numbers of bombs (irrespective of weight) dropped on London boroughs from the night of 7th October 1940, to the night of 5th May 1941, and includes only those boroughs which reported a total of more than fifteen bombs to the hundred acres.
