description <p>During the Second World War,<br />anyone not employed in an<br />essential occupation was evacuated<br />from certain coastal areas of Britain.<br />This was made necessary, first, by the<br />very real threat of a German invasion<br />after the fall of France in 1940, and<br />then, because of the need to create a<br />security zone around the British coast<br />as the Allied forces massed for the<br />invasion of the Continent. In the small<br />coastal town of Southwold in Suffolk, a<br />large Regency house was requisitioned<br />as an army storehouse and its<br />valuable contents were removed to<br />secure storage. The house, known as<br />Park Villa, had been inherited by a<br />Miss Margaret Grubbe, and was<br />described as containing a "veritable<br />museum" of furnishings.</p>
