The Road To Liberation - 1st December 1940
Updated: Dec 4, 2020
Good morning everyone
The Jersey Government have new COVID restrictions that are coming in that will affect tours for December. I am waiting for the inevitable temporary close down order and the even more inevitable "there is no support available at this time" As soon as I get an update I will reach out to all booked in. Hopefully the numbers drop soon and it's only a temporary situation and not a lengthy lockdown.
Below I have set up a digital tour of the German WW2 M19 Automatic Fortress Mortar and interconnected Sechsschartentürm Heavy MG Turret Bunker. This is found at Strongpoint Corbiere (Aerial above)
Hope you all have a great day.

Corner House Pub closed for a few days owing to a German brawl—this is only one of many at places frequented or occupied by troops, especially since the releasing of spirits.

80 years ago today on the 1st of December 1940, HMCS Saguenay was torpedoed 300 miles (480 km) west of Ireland by the Italian submarine Argo while escorting Convoy HG-47, and managed to return to Barrow-in-Furness, escorted by HMS Highlander, largely under her own power, but with 21 dead and without most of her bow; she was under repair in Greenock until 22 May 1941.
