“The Shingle Street Mystery”

Ron Clayton presents:

“The Shingle Street Mystery”

Did the Germans really land on the Suffolk Coast in 1940 ?

At the Martlesham Heath Aviation Society monthly meeting, on Friday 5th August starting at 7:30.

The events Ron talks about allegedly took place in the summer of 1940. But the story really begins in December 2002, when, as the winter evening closed in, Ron sat in a bungalow in Aldeburgh and an old man told him a story.

The story was that, in August 1940, a German force attempted a landing in the Shingle Street/Hollesley Bay area. The attack was thwarted, but a veil of secrecy was thrown over the attempt. To this day it is denied that this event ever took place!

Ron’s talk will focus closely on the story he was told, his research into it over the past 20 year, and his findings. It is not a general talk about the possible German invasion period and the rumours that abounded at the time and since then. Although of course they will come into it.

Venue: Martlesham Heath Community Centre Felixstowe Road, Martlesham Heath, IP12 4PB
