WORLD WAR II INVASION DEFENCES

In the North West England

 

Fortified pubs, hedgehogs and dragons teeth! - hear about the ingenious network of defences that was hastily built all over the British Isles in 1940 to prevent an anticipated German invasion. This talk covers the fascinating story behind the varied and ingenious types of defences in the North West and shows where to find the surprisingly still intact defences that remain today. 

We welcome Ian Sanders, back to our group. Ian some of you may know , lives locally and is a member of Manchester Military History Society, and produces and hosts Cold War Conversations Podcasts
