West Suffolk was a rural area and Bures only a remote village. Suffolk County Councils response to local Air Raid Precautions were summarised as:-
The Government takes the view that
there are no worthwile targets in West Suffolk and least of all in rural
areas. Any damage from air action will therefore be sporadic and accidental.
Considering Bures Hamlet was the site of the largest USAAF Bomb Dump in East Anglia and we suffered the loss of five lives in Nayland Road due to enemy action, this is an understatement to say the least.
