Just as an adjunct to this, I'm coming across several references to HMS Lynx
, another shore base in Dover. Less seems to be available on this, the best description I have found so far being it was a shore base set in the cliffs at Dover. Opposite from the Lord Warden Hotel (HMS Wasp
) there are a range of cliffs set back from the sea that another source quotes as being the site of a naval base (now filled by a petrol station). The IWM shows two photographs of "A transit camp in Dover"
I wonder if these show Lynx
and if anyone can gshed any more light.
Sorry, the I don't seem to be handling the img controls very well - have inserted the IWM Urls but they don't seem to pick up.
To use IWM images use the ‘Use Image’ link and then either cut and paste the BBCode text, or use the ‘Download’ link to get the full sized image in the browser window, and then copy the url and past it in an image tag in the post, adding an ‘=‘ sign next to the img in the bracket i.e. img=, and then paste the url directly after the ‘=‘, and use the space between the brackets to write any description of want.]
