Right you ‘orrible lot, just a reminder that CART has an online shop (expertly run by Nina) where you can purchase some rather interesting items… These include books, Auxiliary Unit memorial badges, sew-on patches, Countryman’s Calendars / training manuals, baseball caps, DVD’s and more.
Upcoming birthday ? Think about giving a CART gift.

We was there. Lots of folk in 1940’s garb. Lots of bacon rolls, banter and even the odd Mulberry Harbour caisson or two. Thanks to those interested in learning about Churchill’s Secret Army. Thank you Portland !
This was a well attended, highly enjoyable 2-day event. We supplied a joint display of Operational Patrols (including local Patrol info) and Special Duties Section items and video. We had plenty of visitors, interest and a few leads as well. ‘Johnny’ Johnson (the last surviving Dambuster) was guest of honour. Thanks all.
You may have noticed we are having some issues with the map function when searching for Auxiliary Unit Operational Patrols.
Rest assured, this temporary technical glitch will be addressed when we get the new improved website up and running …

It is with sadness we report the passing of Auxilier, Victor Stemp.
Victor was part of the Great Bealings Patrol.
Their training was carried out by regular army soldiers based at Framlingham, including Capt Hoberton, Sgt Barry and four privates. They learnt about setting booby traps and how to move about without being seen. Victor also remembered training with grenades at GHQ Coleshill.
Our condolences to his family.
We understand that his funeral is on Tuesday at Great Bealings and his daughter has kindly arranged for any donations to be made to the BRO (British Resistance Org) Museum
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
