Wartime Dalditch Camp
Peter Hall, Budleigh Salterton
Speaker: Mr Simon Fogg – Local Historian
An illustrated talk on the World War II Royal Marines Training Camp on Woodbury Common. The talk tells of life on the camp and the various training which took place (rifle ranges, land mines, flamethrowers, tank range). Simon also talks about the bombing decoys on Woodbury Common, a mock airfield representing the RAF base at Exeter. Simon will also show some photographs of the various finds he has made on the site and how they can give us more insight to the type of training carried out.
