11th May 1943 Air Raid

By John Magee

I’m researching the early morning raid on Great Yarmouth that took place on the 11th May 1943.

What puzzles me is that the only photograph that shows the aftermath of the raid clearly shows the area that is now the car park belonging to the Imperial hotel whereas the official memorial is situated on the site of the Palm Court Hotel .

I appreciate that the buildings on both sites were destroyed in the same raid but can anyone clarify where the ATS billet actually was . 

There is also mention of the destroyed buildings being called Sefton House and Whitfield House . Again , can anyone clarify this point ? 

Many thanks.
