I've been doing a bit of everything this week - hence the recent deluge of blogging. I'm on a quick visit to Kew to tie up a few loose ends and fill some gaps, with some success.
I've been working backwards amongst some of the units of 55 Division and have unearthed a minefield map of Rye, a defence scheme for a small area of Winchelsea, as well some information on roadblock policy.
This afternoon I'll be going back into the Canadian files to hopefully find some more information about Downsforce, though I'm not too optimistic.
A military plan of defence for a specified area. Defence Schemes were issued at numerous levels. Defence Schemes were later known as Plans to Defeat Invasion on the orders of General Montgomery.
