In November, members of the CART team picked up the items so kindly gifted by Aux Unit veteran, the late Bob Millard (http://www.coleshillhouse.com/bob-millard.php) and his family.

The image below shows Nik Millard handing over a Rum Jar (to have been used in emergencies by the Aux Units – although often ’emptied’ in advance!) to Bill Ashby.

The jar will be on display in the Operational Base at Coleshill House. The rest of the items gifted will be shown by the CART team at various events in 2019.

Bob was a great friend to CART and and his items will ensure that the sacrifice he was willing to make will never be forgotten.

It’s been a busy few days for the CART team!

Our Press Officer Andrew Chatterton delivered a talk to the Newton Poppleford Local Historical Society. Also our Devon researcher, Nina Hannaford brought along a display with information on the local patrols and Special Duties Branch which went down really well.

We already have a couple of new leads for both the Aux Units and Special Duties Branch in East Devon as a result.

Thanks to all who attended and the generous donations !

On Sunday 11 November, the National Service of Remembrance will be held at the Cenotaph on Whitehall, London.

Starting at 11am, the service will commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts.

This year, Remembrance Sunday falls on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Many of the Auxiliary Unit Patrol Leaders were First World War veterans.

At the moment there will be 14 marching (watch out for D25), a mixture of relatives and CART researchers: David Hancock, Roger Green, Charlie Hancock, Polly Hancock, Paul Jarvis, Alan Jarvis, James Miners, Michael Miners, Philip Merricks, Robert Macaulay, David Macaulay, Jim Gascoyne, Wallace John Hewett and Anita Griggs.

“We will remember them”

CART Devon and Somerset researchers have recently managed to get a copy of a photo showing some of the Auxiliers in the Nether Stowey (nr Bridgwater, Somerset) Patrol. This is quite a rare thing to find, as very few photos were taken of Auxiliers…
A patrol report for the Nether Stowey Patrol will be added to the CART website when the new website is up and running…

Jim Gascoyne is the son of an Auxilier & an ATS “secret sweetie” Special Duties operator.

The talk is at Willesborough Windmill TN24 0QG.   18.45 for 19.30 start.

Jim has marched with Auxiliary veterans at the Cenotaph in memory of the Auxiliary Units.

Guaranteed to be an excellent evening !
