It was the first type of wingless rocket projectile used in the Second World War. *This V2 has been in British hands since the Nazi rocket research station at Peenemunde was captured.

A flying bomb looked like landing on the practice ground, but fell some 200 yds short in Albert Road. The players and umpires lay on the ground, and spectators were to be seen in curious postures in the pavilion and around the ground. The first ball, when the game was resumed, was hooked for six by Jack Robertson.
