The National Trust at Coleshill are planning another event next year. This event is happening mainly due to the overwhelming success of last years event on July 4th.

This info was taken from their website. It is uncertain at this time if CART will be involved. Bookmark this page on our site for more info.

Witness first hand life as a trainee Auxiliary Reserve at the grand opening of a replica WWII underground operational base at Coleshill, home of the British Resistance. Commemmorate the loss of Coleshill House on the 60th anniversary of the fire.

Step back in time at our nostalgic family weekend remembering the secret wartime volunteers, who trained up as Britain’s last line of defence in case of invasion. Check out the 70-year old Operational Base (OB), the Guard House and the Trust’s brand new underground Heritage-Lottery-funded replica OB. Get in the mood at our 1940’s street party with a Big Swing Band, drill practice with the Auxiliers, food, talks, art exhibition, re-enactments, entertainment, and a commemorative Church Service.

We have just set up two dates next year for CART members to have a complete tour of the Coleshill estate in Oxfordshire.

The land owner is the National Trust and they have kindly granted us access. They also offer around 5 tours each year but as you would expect they are not as detailed as ours.

The dates are Saturday March 10th and Saturday 6th October. Places are limited. If you would like to attend please email hq@coleshillhouse.com with your preferred date asap.

You can take a virtual tour of the site here.

More info to follow in the new year.

Each year the Home Guard and Bevin Boys are represented on Remembrance Sunday and march past the Cenotaph on Whitehall.

CART feels strongly that members of the British resistance should also be represented separately to the Home Guard.

Please show your support and get involved here

You have the chance to take part in a unique event that allows you to learn more about the Auxiliary Units from the comfort of your own home.

CART is planning to hold a ‘virtual’ online conference in 2012 which will see some of the country’s leading researchers on the Auxiliary Units give talks over 12 hours.

The event will utilise simple downloadable software which will allow you to see the speaker, chat in a live chat window to them and others and view PowerPoint slides etc.

Before we can plan this event we need YOUR feedback. Please have your say about the event here
