Lyminge Observer Corps post resited

Initally opened: 1925 Post reference: 1/C.3 Resired to: R.170408

(Date in month not known)

The post was initially situated next to the telegraph pole outside the Methodist Chapel on Church Road.

KG 2 intercepted

Due to the heavy cloud the Observer Corps are unable to get a visual fix on the aircraft and the number of raiders is incorrectly assessed so of the five squadrons scrambled to intercept only 74 Sqn manage to engage them before they reach the Isle of Sheppy and split into two groups: one to attack Sheerness (a Naval base) and the other Eastchurch (a Coastal Command airfield).
