"On July 3, 1944, a V-1 flying bomb decimated the 130th Chemical Processing Company of the United States Army, which was stationed at Sloane Court in London. The incident marked the greatest loss of life by American servicemen due to an attack by a V-1 Flying Bomb.[also known as "doodlebug", or "buzz bomb,"]

The men of the 130th Chemical Processing Company had only arrived in London two months earlier.Their mission was to be trained in dealing with the aftermath of a possible chemical warfare attack , as had occurred in World War I. In particular, their job was to make ready special clothing impregnated with chlorine compounds, and to distribute it in case of such an attack. A plaque at the corner of Sloane Court East and Turk's Row commemorates the tragedy.


63 American servicemen from the 130th Chemical Processing Company are recorded as having died in the blast.Many are interred at Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial but a number of the dead were repatriated to USA for burial."
