The List so far
- February 1943 - Nazi Plot to kill Churchill in North Africa (Schultze - Tangier) cited in message from Attlee
But was there an unreported attempt to Kill Churchill in March 1943 - when his bodyguard Walter Thompson was admitted to hospital with apparent self-inflicted gun shot wounds. His son who visited him in hospital claims it was an embarrassing accident caused by him keeping his revolver in his belt and jumping up to answer the telephone. Lord Haw-Haw claimed that Thompson had tried to kill himself (lies) but other reports suggested a more complicated version.
Certainly 1943 saw the deaths of 4 significant people of note
- July 4th 1943 Victor Cazalet MP and General Sikorski in flying boat accident at Gibraltar
- March 17th 1943 Peter Mazzina's suicide by hanging in London
- July 7th 1943 Sir Harry Oakes's unsolved murder (probable shooting) in Nassau
