Thanks. During COVID there have been so many documentaries on TV and umpteen of them about the various royals.

Question.

What valuable substance was brought to England from France in 1939 and stored/hidden in Windsor castle?

Correction. It was in 1940. The planned movement of the substance was 1939 but it arrived in 1940.

Something rings a bell about a mission into Scandinavia involving a source of heavy water, I think it was something to do with preventing Germany using it in the development of nuclear weapons. I also recently read a book about the search for superheavy element, and there was a dismantling of Japanese research facilities in the aftermath of World War 2

I am going with deuterium or tritium oxide aka Heavy Water
