Broadside "In Case of actual Invasion." 1pp. folio, printed in Newcastle by S. Hodgson, it reads in part: "...To lessen as much as possible that Confusion which must necessarily take Place in Case of Alarm on the Landing of the Enemy, - the following Plan for the more easy Removal of the Women and Children, and the Aged and Infirm, from Villages near the Sea Coast, to the Place of general Military Rendezvous, is recommended." It proposes dividing each village into four stations, from which accompanying carts would be on hand to transport those people either unable to journey on foot or most vulnerable in the case of an attack. With thorough instructions on how to remove all those in need within one hour's time. Fine condition. Napoleon's mooted invasion of the United Kingdom elicited a strong response in the first decade of the 19th century. The years 1803-05 witnessed widespread anti-invasion preparations, which included an enormous mobilization of the population and the erecting of numerous fortifications along the Southern English Coast.
