The maps don't have dates on them, so it is impossible to say what was damaged when - indeed damage in one area can be as a result of several separate incidents.
That being said, the bombs I referred to above are at the other end of Union Street
What I can confirm is that a V1 rocket landed at the junction of Union Street
and Great Guildford Street
(i.e. the other end - the Borough end), and that during the war two buildings on the north west corner and one on the north east corner were completely destroyed and that the other buildings close to the junction were damaged beyond repair.
I guess one of them was probably the pub and it is a reasonable guess that the damage was done by the V1.
I don't know if the pubs were there - if they still are and sell cider, I am sure you will get responses (see other threads or search for cider to see what I mean!).
Anyway, got to go, as my wife appears to be starting to be going into labour (and no, I'm not joking...!).
