Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain

 

It is known that Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain regularly fished at Castle Forbes and it was during one such visit in April 1939 that his trip was cut short by Italy's Benito Mussolini launching an attack on Albania.

 

He returned to London the day after Italy invaded Albania, and five days before Parliament was recalled to hear his account of the invasion and his important announcement of British (and French) guarantees to Greece and Romania.
