Btcv Handbook Footpaths In Milton Florida

In 1941, Winston Churchill demanded that a propaganda war should be properly waged against the Nazis and an organisation called the Political Warfare Executive was set up, which ran many of their operations from places in Beds, Herts and Bucks.

Staff, defectors and prisoners of war were taken to the Sugar Loaf pub in Dunstable, and then put into cars with blacked out windows.

Only now do we know that they were dispersed to villages across Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, to fight their hidden war.

One of the most amazing stories is the part played by the small village of Milton Bryan in Bedfordshire.

On the edge of the Woburn Estate, a top secret state-of-the-art radio station was built to record 'black propaganda' radio shows.

Led by the former Express Correspondent, Sefton Delmer, a multi-national team pretended to be Germans, and fooled the enemy into thinking they were listening to real German radio stations.

The programmes encouraged German soldiers to surrender, gave false and misleading instructions to civilians, and played music that the Nazi regime frowned upon.

As well as the main aim of turning the German people against the Nazis and demoralising enemy soldiers, Milton Bryan also played the latest German hits, and had the latest news from Germany which had been intercepted at Bletchley Park.
Broadcasts were made to the German Army across Europe, to U-boat crews in the Atlantic, and also directly into Germany itself.

One trick was to wait until official German radio stations had gone off air during air raids, then Milton Bryan would broadcast on the same frequencies, so the Germans thought they were still listening to the real station.

The work of Milton Bryan was so convincing that Goebbels, the Nazi head of propaganda, complained about how well they did their job.

The radio station at Milton Bryan stood derelict for many years after the Second World War, but the main building, guard house, air raid bunker, and some of the living quarters still exist. There are still bars on the windows where German prisoners of war used to broadcast, and the remains of the blackout screens still hang over the windows.

The building is now being gradually renovated by the Ampthill and Woburn District Scouts, who use the surrounding land as a campsite. One of the old Nissen huts has been turned into a canteen, and the other into a toilet block. The side of the main building now has a climbing wall for abseiling!

Although the work of Milton Bryan remained a secret for many years, the techniques the station pioneered are still being used today.

In the recent Iraq war, US propaganda experts used modern technology to block official Iraqi government radio stations, and broadcast their own programmes of their own.

Listen to their broadcasts
Now for the first time since the Second World War, you can hear extracts from the the very last day of broadcasting from Milton Bryan on 30 August 1945, the day that Hitler committed suicide, and the day that Ravensbruck Concentration Camp was liberated by the Red Army.

These audio clips come from Kurzwellesender Atlantik (Radio Programmes aimed at German U-boat crews operating in the Atlantic Ocean) and Soldatensender West (Radio Programmes aimed at German soldiers and civillians in Mainland Europe)

Sadly, I too shall miss this very intersting broadcast. The subject matter is sure to be of interest to a wider audiance. Could this be repeated in some form or another on the evening regional programme?

Very interesting and I look forward to hearing the programme.As a 'radio amateur' (callsign G4BXM) and member of the Vintage and ~Military Amateur Radio Society'(VMARS) I have researched this subject and its connection with 'Aspidistra' and have often wondered why it has never featured on mainstream TV for example,although I am sure Felix Delmer has things to say on that subject.Good Luck.

Very interesting, pity the broadcast is regional and I will be unable to hear it here in N. Ireland to learn more about this aspect of wartime work. I have a special interest in this area as my late father was a naval Y service officer stationed at the Beaumanor radio intercept station.
