Aufklarungsverbande over Thanet

Reader, Tony Ovenden, has very kindly sent in an unusual photograph taken by a Luftwaffe 'Aufklarungsverbande' reconaissance unit on May 19th 1940.

If you can't make it out, then it's of St Nicholas at Wade, with what would be today's Thanet Way, running from top to bottom along the left of the image.

It's now scanned and in the photo library if you wish to see the larger version.

I was in the Thanet Times in 1997 identifying the location of that picture !!

I am led to belive that Mr Ovenden, T , is a labour candidate
