CHAPMAN PINCHER

A SATISFYING COUP

I

n the whole field of investigative journalism there is little that is more satisfying than triumphing, publicly, over a great Department of State and its civil service mandarins and senior politicians with whom one has been in open conflict. One of my best recollections in that respect, which still warms my old bones, centred on that watery thoroughfare, the Suez Canal. The incident also highlights the extent to which events of the greatest international importance are so often governed by factors unknown to the general public. The time was December 1967 - six months after the Six-Day War in which Israeli forces, headed by General Yitzhak Rabin, had achieved spectacular victories in what Israel claimed to be a pre-emptive strike against threatening Arab forces. In the process, Israel had taken control of the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan, the Golan Heights from Syria and the Sinai Peninsula and the Gaza Strip from Egypt. The Israeli capture of Sinai had given it control of the Suez Canal which was within Israeli artillery range. Foreign Office diplomats, urged on by the Labour Foreign Secretary, George Brown, were putting all the pressure they could on the Israeli government to allow the canal to be reopened because its closure was costing Britain millions. The ebullient Brown was confidently predicting success but my Israeli sources were predicting otherwise, as I intimated in my newspaper, to Brown’s increasing annoyance. I had built up a fruitful relationship with the Israeli Intelligence Service, Mossad, over several years and it had paid off many times in the form of information about Middle East events which it suited the Israeli government to reveal but could not do so publicly. In the process, I had made a friend of Brigadier Zwi Zamir, the military attaché at the Israeli Embassy in London who was scheduled to return to Israel to become the Mossad chief. So, I was understandably elated when Zamir telephoned me to ask if I would like an exclusive interview with General Rabin, who was passing through London to become ambassador in Washington. In a meaty interview in a private room in the Hyde Park Hotel, Rabin assured me that not only did the Israelis want the Canal kept shut but that the American government was, secretly, backing them strongly in that resolve. He stressed that the US government was the only one capable of exerting effective pressure on Israel to reopen it. Brown could bleat as much as he liked but he would have no impact. Rabin first explained to me why the Israelis wanted the Canal closed indefinitely. So long as they remained in control of Sinai, the Egyptians would be forced to keep their Russian-supplied fighter-planes on airfields out of Israeli artillery range. That meant that the planes would not have enough range to bomb the major Israeli cities. The Israeli defence line against Egyptian tank attack could also be much shorter and there were other tactical advantages. The American interests in keeping the Canal shut were strategic. The Russians could not use it to ship arms to Vietnam, as they had been doing before, and it also blocked their easy route to the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean, where Britain had recently left a power vacuum with abandonment of control of the port of Aden. Without, of course, revealing my source, my front-page report stated, categorically, that the Canal would remain shut indefinitely – probably for years - because the US did not want it opened. It was roundly ridiculed in Parliament by the furious Brown who forecast that it would be reopened ‘within weeks’. The Canal remained closed for eight years!

hen Frank and Margaret Rysiecki arrived in Hungerford 6 years ago, the whole town was fascinated at first and then became quite proud,that Frank a genunie Polish armed forces veteran should wish to lay a wreath in mermory of his fallen comrades at our town war memorial on Remembrance Sunday. In 2010 Frank was not to be present and the wreath was laid by his widow Margaret. The story of his life is lodged in considerable detail in out town archives but my friendship with Margaret enables me to provide a precis. Frank was born in September 1919 in Eastern Poland and amidst all the problems of the Russian advance into the area he was evacuated to the west in horse drawn carts and somehow he survived to later return to the family home. When war broke out in September 1939 Frank attempted to travel to France to join with allied forces but he was betrayed to the Russians. At this time there was a pact between Russia and Germany, and Frank was regarded as a dangerous political prisoner and was sentenced to 10 years’ hard labour in a labour camp within the Artic Circle. At first he was engaged in arduous forestry works in winter temperatures of -40c and later transferred into iron ore mines until 1941. At this time Germany invaded Russia and Poles were then regarded as allies along with Russia, the UK and USA. An agreement was made that Polish prisoners should be released and sent south to join the British Army in Persia (now Iran). This journey took 6 weeks of train travel with only occasional food provided. The Polish Army was reforming in Uzbekistan and British uniforms were provided enabling Frank to join with his comrades in the British 13th Army. Training was provided for ongoing campaigns and this proved to be the invasion of Italy in December 1943. Frank was by now a 2nd Lieutenant in the Polish 2nd corps in the British 8th Army. He was badly wounded at Monte Casino in May 1944. Brought to the UK by hospital ship docking at Southampton, he was transferred to the Polish military hospital in Scotland where after 8 months he was able to walk again. Frank became an industrial chemist after the war. He met and married Margaret in 1951 and came to live and work in Liverpool and St. Helen’s. His subsequent move to Hungerford was due to family connections and we were pleased to welcome them both and express sorrow at his death.

ust a quick up date following on from the Retailers Meeting last month. Road Works – High Street still due to finish week ending 30th July (as per Wales & West yesterday), we will see! There are a further five weeks of disruption to follow at the Southern end of the High Street, opposite Atherton Crescent, at some point. We are still awaiting a date on this and Nigel Perrin is keeping on top of this and as soon as this date is know it’ll be passed on. Tourist Information – First the boards on the library, Jenny Booth has been doing a lot of work getting the details, contacts etc and a meeting is taking place on August 11th to attempt to get Hungerford information on them, so we’ll update you asap. Anthony Buckwell will be Chairing a working party which is a joint venture between the Chamber of Commerce, Town Council and Town and Manor looking at improving tourist facilities’. However in the meantime the Chamber and Sugar Mouse have joined “forces” (must be a better word, but can’t think of it!) and will be providing a Tourist Information Point in Sugar Mouse. The space to accommodate this is being provided free of charge and the Chamber are providing and funding the display fixtures and signage. So what we need now is as much information as possible to put there, if your a B&B/Hotel etc please do supply us with any advertising material you have (tourist will have access to the phone in Sugar Mouse to check vacancies etc). Basically any information that is Hungerford related is most welcome, if you can’t get down to the shop just let me know and I’ll collect the info’ later this week. It’s planned to have this up and running by the end of this week for the start of the main tourist season. Welcome for Hero’s – Robert Johnston is currently on holiday, updates will follow asap. Just for your info – for those that haven’t yet heard the planning application for the budget hotel has been granted on appeal – Ben Blake

ungerford’s John O’Gaunt Community Technology College has received national recognition, headteacher, Neil Spurdell reports in the school’s magazine. Mr Spurdell said: “It is extremely important that the school is recognised within the community and has the support from Hungerford locals in particular, but recently, we received national recognition for the improvements that we have made at John O’Gaunt. On the strength of last year’s GCSE results, we can now proudly boast to be the most improved secondary school in the South East from 2009 - 2010 and, perhaps even more impressively, the most improved school covering an even greater region over the period 2007-2010. This is testament to the hard work of the students and staff we have within the school and having made such enormous strides, we are determined to maintain and build upon the levels we have reached”. 22.6.11

HUNGERFORD CLEAN-UP SUGGESTIONS Hungerford Town Council’s Recreation, Amenities and War Memorials committee will seek clean-up work at the entrances to Hungerford, St Saviour’s area, the skatepark, Triangle Field surrounds and Bridge Street war memorial.
