Vanishing Mayor Mystery


Where did he Go?

The July issue has more answers to the vanishing Mayor Mystery.

Where did he go in 1940?

What happened to his wife Mary and their four children after they left Tower House?

What was the Wartime job that forced him to leave Rye and eventually give up in the mid term of the Mayoral Year.

The answer to these questions have even surprised us here at “Rye’s Own” where we thought that nothing politicians do would surprise us.

We still have not found where he went or what he did after 1940 or what became of his family. Did they ever return to Rye? Perhaps someone will have the answers.

Get your copy from any Rye newsagent and see why we were amazed by what we have discovered since Arthur Woodgate mentioned the three times Mayor of Rye’s mysterious disappearance in 1940.
