Rye is a town on the south coast of England, mentioned during the pilot's discussion regarding the possibility of a German invasion.

The NovelEdit

Skull suggests Rye as a possible landing site for the German invasion, only for Quirk to reject it in favour of either Sandgate or Dungeness.[1]

The MiniseriesEdit

When one of the pilots states that he had heard the Germans would go to Rye, another pilot responds with the words 'Good golf course', prompting Moggy to nominate Hastings, on the grounds that 'William the Conqueror knew what he was doing'.[2]
