    Does anyone know if Weybourne Camp was a site used for special forces and the like? I know that it was a secure area due to possible invasion and was a training area for an Anti-Aircraft artillery. But was it also a 'secret training site' for commando, auxiliary units, for example?

    Reason I ask is that my late father in-law mention explosives training near Holt. He was not in the military but a civilian. He also recalled attending a vehicle training course with London Transport (motorbikes, cars, trucks) and weapons training out at the airfield we now call Heathrow.
