A portion of the article was unnecessarily removed as potentially libelous. An article by Francis Beckett ("My father, the Nazi") in The Spectator of 1 May 1999 outlines his father's situation in 1945. The article is not freely available online in a complete form, but the following is used as a teaser:
I WAS born in May 1945, four days after VE day and a little more than a year after the Home Secretary, Herbert Morrison, released my father from prison, in the small Berkshire village of Chenies, 21 miles from the centre of London. It was exactly that distance because the dangerous fascist John Beckett was not allowed to travel more than five miles from his home nor within 20 miles of London.
This seems to be enough to verify the article's claim. Philip Cross (talk) 09:34, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
