Anti-invasion defences suffolk - world war ii


This website is intended to be an ongoing project to describe and document the anti-invasion measures taken in Suffolk during WW2. It should not be regarded as comprehensive, I dont have the time for that and am also probably unaware of much that still exists! It is simply to share an interest with anyone who may also be interested. The website should also be viewed as a continuous 'work in progres'!

Also outlined in this site are some basic notes on defence tactics, invasion threat, defence works etc. These should set the scene for the survey work and unit Defence Schemes outlined in the site.

For the role of the Home Guard and Civil Defence in the event of invasion:
