Llanteg Area during WW2

The Invasion of Wiseman’s Bridge
by Mark Lewis of Tenby Museum (published in PembRokeshire Life Magazine July 2013)
‘This important event required strict security.

Restrictions were imposed along the coast from Tenby to Laugharne and inland to a depth of six miles.

Extra restrictions were put on civilian movement.  

A curfew operated from dusk until dawn between July 12 and August 9.  

Civilians were forbidden to carry cameras, binoculars or telescopes and had to carry their identity cards with them at all times, and on-the-spot checks were made to see that these regulations were being followed.

Mail, telegraph and telephone, were subject to censorship.  

Control points were set up on all roads and railway stations leading into the area.’
