German Commando Raid Against the Isle of White?

January 30, 2017

Did a German Commando Raid take place against the Isle of White


Author Adrian Searle uncovered an account from a German soldier, Dr Dietrich Andernacht, who said he was part of a secret operation to steal equipment from the RAF St Lawrence radar station on August 15, 1943.

Nazi commandos allegedly raided the station during the Second World War in a sabotage operation that has been hushed up for more than 70 years.

Searle claims that as many as 12 specialised Nazi stormtroopers secretly arrived in U-boats from the Channel Islands – sensationally trying to come ashore in dinghies until they were spotted by British soldiers and engaged in gunfire.
