INFORMATION:

Looking at Charlton Hill Coppice from the road.

History: Before war was declared the British Government ordered a Resistance Movement to be raised. The men that were asked to join the 'Special Duties Section', were Game Keepers, Farm Labourer's, men who if they went to ground would not be missed in their local area. The Royal Engineers built Hides all over the country in very secret locations. By the end Of 1940 about 300 hideouts were already in use around the country.
