Churchill's British Resistance - The Auxiliary Units

 

Coleshill Remembers - Seventy Years Coleshill,Oxfordshire - 4th July 2010


 

 

 

 

To mark the 70th anniversary of the Auxiliary Units the National Trust, CART and other groups came together to celebrate the bravery of these men and women on July 4th 2010.

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HELPED MAKE JULY 4TH A GREAT DAY AND A FITTING TRIBUTE TO THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN WHO WERE PREPARED TO LAY DOWN THEIR LIVES TO PROTECT AND PRESERVE OUR FREEDOM.

The day attracted over 1,250 people, which was far higher than expected by the National Trust. We also had over 300 unique hits on this website which is a record. The talks and displays were a great success and we are being sent positive feedback all the time. The one question on everyone's lips is.....when can we do this again?

Listen to Emma Colman's amazing audio presentation of the day here.
