Edgarley SD 2Edgarley ‘Chirnside Five’ – Special Duties Radio OUT Station has today been added to our Special Duties Branch microsite.

The Special Duties wireless set was recorded as operating out of a hut or box at Edgarley Manor Farm, Edgarley in Somerset. This was concealed as, or part of, a chicken house that was located between the farm house and Wick Lane.

There is some doubt over the actual operators of the station but the landowners (Captain) Kenneth and Dorothy Marsh have ideal credentials to be involved. Locally it is suggested a woman was the main operator.

Hemyock Special Duties Outstation 5

Today we added a very special location to our Special Duties Branch Micro-site.

The Hemyock SDB Outstation in Devon.

This EXCLUSIVE report by CART CIO’s Nina Hannaford and Dr Will Ward shows just how well preserved the bunker is and the remaining is fascinating.

We have now moved all the information of locations used by the Special Duties Section to its own page on the site.

The Special Duties Wireless Section (SDS) operated in the same areas as the Auxiliary Unit patrols but they were completely separate and unknown to the patrols.
