Map may reveal Churchill secrets





Mystery surrounds a map which experts believe may provide new information about plans to defend England from invasion in World War II.
Auctioneers want help to verify claims made for the document, thought to have been used by Winston Churchill.

The one inch to one mile Ordnance Survey map centres on Westerham, Kent near Churchill's home at Chartwell.

A label on the back says it was "reputedly used in 1940 in connection with the defence of SE England".
