    hah. No way any of this is plausible.

    Nuns? Beers?

    Nah.

    German Unterseetruppen invade Dover from inside the harbor. They come ashore riding sea lions (IE operation sealion). They were deployed from a curiously repainted milch cow and attack the garrison with submachine gun fire whilst singing

    Ve all livve ein ach yellov submarine..........

    Hmmm, you obviously are too young to remember the old East German women's Olympic swimmers then. IIRC their team name could have been the "Silverbacks."

Once ashore at Dover,the boaters quickly pull out weapon/equipment containers, and the assault is on. The beach is secure before you can say "Bobs your Uncle"

    But, the germans did have made up BRITISH unifroms,they were planning to use them when they invaded Briton.
    But the germans were caught,nd the british found all these BRITISH uniforms in germans hands.

    Now, if we could only work up a plausible strategy for alien intervention.

    Well, seeing as you asked

    "I dont like it. its too quite" Said Sergent Simpkins of A Company Dover Home guard.

    "whats that"! He muttered to himself. as a jaunty musical tune wafted out of the mist. "The beach boys?" Then shouted to his men."Brace yourselves lads!. The alien nazi surfers are coming!"

    So, we disguise the German airborne troops as Nuns beneath their cloaks of invisibility. They secure the castle and the access roads to Dover then throw off the cloaks of invisibility and "treat" the british garrison to a resounding chorus of "Climb every mountain, then club them unconcious with their guitars.

    The Crews of the "Dutch" vessels have their jackboots replaced by clogs there by confirming their dutchness to even the most alert sailor in the docks. They advance behind a wave of premium bottled lager which they offer to the garrison on the basis of 36 bottles for one rifle and 64 for each machine gun. Once the lager has been drunk they can put their boots back on and signal to France for reinforcements.

    By my reckoning they should be in London by six pm assuming a landing time of three in the morning.

    Simple really. I am suprised the Germans didnt think of it themselves. The biggest danger is that if the garrison of Dover is entirely made up of tone deaf anti catholic teetotalers the plan falls apart.

    That should work? Hell if that doesnt get them an armed escort into Dover harbour I dont know what will.

    Failing that maybe if the wore nuns robes under the invisibility cloaks?

    Your still going to loose in the long term but in IMO but it saves having to build all those tunnels and tubes.
    An commando raid to take Dover, or any other port would be a German version of the Dieppe Raid and probably as costly in men lost. They would have had to find some better beaches .

    If the olympic swimmer idea does not fly then perhaps a reenactment of the Norman invasion. The British rulers could be fooled into allowing this as they were all decended from the Norman inaders.

    MULBERRY harbors 1 on the US side at , I think St Laurent and the UK side at Ammaronches . The latter survived a storm shortly after D day the former didn't.
    So IMHO this could have been done off the Kentish beaches or off Suffolk & Norfolk beaches too. Of course it means postponing the Russia operation for a while . And you still have to flatten the RAF . But it just could have worked.
