This place had many different names. S25-1-1, Project-J, or STS-103 but was unofficially known as Camp-X
This place was located near Whitby/Oshawa, Ontario and was a joint effort between the Canadian and British governments.
In the 1940’s.
What was this place? A paramilitary training camp set up just before the attack on Pearl Harbor. Many insist that Camp-X was key to many of the successes by allied forces during the war.
According to Wikipedia, more than 500 allied units were trained at Camp-X during the war. The camp was also responsible for the creation of Hydra, a station responsible for coding and decoding important communications during the war.
Ian Flemming, James Bond author trained at Camp-X. It’s often suspected that Bond is based on Sir William Stephenson, Canadian and Winston Churchill confidant responsible for the establishment of the centre in 1941.
Camp-X was only declassified in 1995, allowing us a peek into a secret spy training facility that might have been key to the outcome of the Second World War, right here in Canada.
