  • My Favorite SEALION theory....

    The Chunnel is completed in 1938. In May, 1940, German motor cyclists, dressed as Nuns, capture both ends of the tunnel in daring coup de main operation, featuring a new type armored car disguised as the Popes touring car and known only as "the Pontiff Mobile". Because the British are trying to evacuate from Dunkirk, no forces are available to repel the invaders. By June 30th the Munich boys choir is singing 'London Bridge is falling down' in Westminster Cathedral.

    Although it does not mention the nuns, you might like

      Your argument does seem more plausible then most attempts to argue Sealion could have succeeded.

      One problem though. Wouldn't the British and French troops have used the chunnel to escape (perhaps charging a tuppence for preferred seating)?

        Could the nazis have excavated a invasion tunnel between June 1940 & December 1943?

          Ah! He said that word!

          What? I want to discuss Sealion...

          Ah! He Said it again!

          What word?

          Suffice to say that's the word that the Knights of ACG cannot hear!

          Oh look, it's a new guy, with a thread on Sealion.

          AAAAAAHHHHHH!

            My favourite one is that the Germans capture the BEF yes all 14 divisions and destroys the RAF and all of Britains capacity to make fighters, still can't defeat the Royal Navy to launch and invasion and even if they did, the Local Defense Volunteers would smash the Wehrmacht.

            Easy peasy really.

              If you can invent a fantasy world where the Germans somehow destroy the BEF, the RAF and Britains aircraft industry, that fantasy world ought to have room for Local Defence forces that behave like the SAS.

              But you may want to do some more study on just how large the RN was in the '40's. No fantasy can change that.

                So, what's stopping the Royal Navy from dropping depth charges onto the tunnel in mid-channel? Really easy-peasy. Results are lots of drowned Germans and a huge blast of water from both portals.

                      No one will use the Chunnel to escape! How? Why? Because a fifth columnist, disguised as a British Railway worker, places a simple sign on the Chunnel "out of Order....Please go to Dunkirk and catch the ferry."

                        A bevy of Swedish bathing beauties, paid by Goebels to sunbath on the beachs near the Chunnel, distract the Royal Navy destroyers. First they see the girls. Then the billboard above the girls "ENGLAND EXPECTS EVERY MAN TO DO HIS DUTY"
                        The Rn destoyers run aground trying to do thier duty with the girls......and the perfidious plot continues!
