Starfish sites
Towns thus successfully protected, according to some, include Bristol, Sheffield, and Derby. 'Starfish' decoy sites were established in July 1940 by the National Decoy Authority as part of a programme of civil defences. They were operated by lighting a series of controlled fires or other pyrotechnics during an air raid to simulate an urban area targeted by bombs.
