Sheringham at War – 75 years on
Tim Groves, with research support from Iain Turner.
The companion book to the WW1 volume follows the same pattern, but benefits from the fact that there are a relatively good number of Sheringham people who remember events and have provided details. With reasonably deep water around Weyborne, just west of Sheringham, this area was considered a likely invasion point in both wars. Such knowledge lends to rumours of spies and the presence of one of Britain’s ‘secret weapons’ nearby kept the pot boiling.
The book deals with a wide range of relevant issues, making it a very interesting read. As well, of course, it goes into the history of those whose names appear on the War Memorial
