In 1940, when British forces were withdrawn from the Channel Islands during WWII, the Germans seized the opportunity to occupy British territory and the islands were heavily fortified.

One such fortification was Casquets Lighthouse, which the Germans had set up as a naval signalling station, possibly believing the surrounding treacherous waters would be enough to protect them from any commando-style raids.
