The Road to Liberation - 15th December 1940


Good morning everyone


I hope you are all well, I am still behind on emails so please don't think I am ignoring you ;0)

Remote management of sites during this phase of lockdown is going well and both the Tunnels and the Tower are all doing well and water levels are minimum.


Have a great day.

Thanks

Phil
