Kent Auxiliary Units Intelligence Officers
The first I.O for Kent was Grenadier Guards
Captain Peter Fleming. He was the man responsible for setting up the Units in Kent under the
name of the XII corps Observation Unit.
In late 1940 he left and a Royal Fusilier
Captain Norman Field then took over as I.O. At some point in Norman's command he
split Kent in two. West Kent came under the command of Captain George MacNicholl and Norman commanded East
In late 1941 Norman was taken away from the Units
and Captain George MacNicholl took over as I.O. for the whole of Kent for the rest of the war.
