NOTES: After London, the then town of Southampton was looked upon as being the primary target for enemy air raids during World War II. It suffered the effects of 57 air raids from June 1940 until the end of 1944. It was the first town to have a reconstruction plan which was drawn up by Professor Stanley D. Adshead in 1942 and begun in August 1945.
