Living with the Enemy – Linear Walk
It was 80 years ago in April 1942 that, amongst other issues, the German authorities suggested banning radio sets, 6d (2½ pence) banknotes were issued, a night time curfew was introduced and Jersey started to live on ‘Berlin time’. Hear more details about these and other events that affected the civilian population of Jersey during the five long years of Occupation. Starting from the Gunsite café you’ll take a stroll along the ancient ‘Perquage’ (Sanctuary path) past buildings and remains of the German forces up to a long forgotten and overgrown anti-aircraft post before finally arriving at the Jersey War Tunnels. Why not visit the Jersey War Tunnels after the walk and get a bus back town?
