The little known tragedy of Exercise Tiger occurred at Slapton Sands, Devon, not far from Plymouth. News of the diastrous exercise and the huge loss of life were kept under wraps to prevent any potential leaks in the run-up to the Normandy invasion. For more information see:

 

Exercise Tiger Association

 

and

 

Exercise Tiger Trust

 

Many thanks to M5PLY, Ivor Peters, who took me to Slapton Sands and told me the story.
