V1 Rocket aka The Doodlebug

This is what Blanche was referring to last night when she made reference to the May Blitz. The V1 rocket was the first cruise missile and was used as an indiscriminate terror weapon by the Germans against the civilian population in south east England during the latter stages of the war.

No one does withering verbal ridicule like the English. The Nazis send over the most sophisticated weapon ever invented, and their enemies dub it "doodlebug". Like it's a completely fey character from a nursery rhyme.

You can smell the irritation steaming off the Luftwaffe leaders.
