Three originals on show at Chicksands

A great society visit by 20 members to Chicksands in Bedfordshire, where the Intelligence Corps Room in the Priory Officers Mess hosts three original pictures. One subject is a moment of true gallantry by an Intelligence Corps Captain who successfully ambushed a boat on the River Maas in Germany in 1945. The second is the activities of an intelligence unit in the North African Desert in 1941. Finally Operation Crossbow's reconnaissance room at nearby RAF Medmenham is shown - here the V1 and V2 rocket sites were detected so they could be destroyed. Next a tour of the fascinating Military Intelligence Museum, hosted by brilliant staff, and much to see. Full report in the next Journal (Oct/Nov).  Thanks to Gilly Rainer for arranging this.
