While researching for my latest story I got sidetracked and finished up spending several hours reading about the 'Bedford Triangle' of secret headquarters, code breaking, radio interception and deception. Some of which are now common knowledge, like Bletchley Park, but others are relatively unknown. For example, Waterloo & Sons (now De La Rue) in Dunstable printed false foreign identity documents and The Luton News produced Nachrichten für die Truppe (News for the Troops) for SOE. There was an experimental radar or radio setup (no one seems quite sure which) which constructed on Dunstable Downs (above the gliding club) that utilised an antenna consisting of chicken wire - 20 mile of it! I still can't find out what that for. Vauxhall Motors in Luton made Churchill tanks as well as the (in)famous Bedford trucks and the companies on Luton Airfield produced parts for Mosquitoes while Percival built training and transport aircraft. During one collection the people an companies in Luton raised over £1 million! What unusual or notable things went on in your neck of the woods?
