Looking at a reference book 'The Blitz Then and Now' Vol 1 there is no
particular mention made of any specific raid on Southend / Leigh on 17 March
1941 though Southend is mentioned around then so it is likely that this was
a case of an aircraft returning to Germany after a raid on London perhaps
off loading bombs before they left the English mainland on their way home.

I expect to visit the local library sometime next week so will have a look
if there is anything I can see that might help - unless you get a better
offer/information in the meantime!

Can any one lead me to or give me information on air raids on Leigh-on Sea
during WW ll, particularly the one on 17 March 1941 in which one of my
wife's relative - Ellen Deal - was killed

Thanking you
