Lord North, Sandwich Bay 1940

Not sure I am in the right place!

Reading about Lord Francis George North killed August 1940 while walking along the beach at Sandwich Bay. He and his sister were killed when they stepped on a landmine.

With his close links to the Sandwich Bay Estate, he MUST have known the beach was mined???
