The Road to Liberation - 23rd December 1940


Good morning everyone


For those not based in Jersey, we have a Government announcement being made today at 11 am but as is common on Jersey, the news is old news and leaks to the media means we know what's coming. JWT will officially be told to close from Christmas eve, as will many shops, barbers etc etc. For those booked on tours in January we will need to reschedule and we will be in contact as soon as we can, apologies in advance!


If anyone is looking for any last min present for those explorers in your family, please think about popping into Newton & Newton they have everything from cool torches for exploring, bb's, safes, tools and lots of other cool stuff! Small business in Jersey needs as much support as we can offer this time of year.



Have a fantastic day!

thanks

Phil


Above (Top) is a very well known Jersey landmark and in WW2 it was used by the German forces as Resistance Nest Mont Orgueil. The Germans modified many parts of the castle including the three towers on the top that were used for observation.

"German Court passes sentence of four months upon the driver of the lorry which went over the quay on the 19th inst., resulting in the death of a German soldier; negligence was alleged. Frosty weather prompts a warning to the public to protect water pipes."
