badge1A genuine rare Aux badge is now on sale on eBay.

These badges were given to most Auxiliers after the war and showed the three battalion numbers 201, 202 and 203.

It is very rare that they are available to buy in the public domain and this badge was issued to an Auxilier from Nerrols Farm Patrol in Somerset. It is in excellent condition.

The current owner has very kindly offered to donate 10% of the winning fee to CART to help with our research.

You can see the badge and place your bid here

We are pleased to say that as of today you can order Bill Watson’s book ‘Gone To Ground’ both on Amazon and our website.

More info can be seen here

Bill completed the manuscript in April 2004 which included a dedication to his late wife, Betty. Bill’s dream was to have it published one day, sadly Bill died in November 2004, aged 80 and his work remained unpublished. In 2011 we obtained the rights to publish the book from Bill’s son. Now is the time to tell that story……………….
