House CLearance in Mytchett
Few little facts about Mytchett
Mytchett is a small village in Surrey. Traditionally the village centre is at Mytchett Crossroads where a community centre was erected in the late 1980s.
On May 20, 1941, Rudolf Hess was transported from the Tower of London to Camp Z which was at Mytchett Place.
The June 1942 move from Mytchett Place was to become notable following the release of MI5 files in 1999. Previously unfounded rumours had claimed that Hess was moved because intelligence reports indicated that a Polish group was planning to break into the Camp Z, kidnap Hess, and beat or kill him by way of revenge for Nazi atrocities in Poland. The MI5 files included a reference to reports of a gun battle between Polish soldiers and guards at Mytchett, although no precise details were given, so the link is not conclusive.
