Churchill's British Resistance - The Auxiliary Units

 

Auxiliary Unit National Badge Campaign

Auxiliary Unit Badge CampaignThe British Government and MOD have never issued a medal or badge to members of the Auxiliary Units to acknowledge the brave training conducted and time served in the Unit post WW2.

Many people are also unaware that if a member of the Auxiliary Unit served more than 3 years in service they are entitled to a Defence Medal. Relatives of Aux members can also apply for this medal which can take approx 4 months to arrive.  To apply for this please see the forms here.

 

Please only apply for this if you have very strong evidence to believe your loved one was in the Aux Unit. We don't want to use up their valuable time. If you're unsure then get in touch with us first.

Why do members of the Auxiliary Unit deserve a badge? They did not see active service.

CART feels that surviving members of the Auxiliary Unit or their relatives should be awarded a specific badge and letter of commendation from the MOD or government as they trained to such a high level to fight a potential invading army and were prepared to just leave their loved ones in the dead of night and never see them again, no goodbyes, no writing letters home from the front line. Then they would have lived underground until they were caught, tortured or shot.

We appreciate that there are certain servicemen who have actually seen action that are also fighting their own war now to get some form of recognition or medal and we do not want to distract from this. They are heroes in our eyes.

The following groups who did not see action directly have been awarded medals for their time serving this country.

Women's Land Army.

Women's Timber Corps.

How do we plan to make it happen?

If you feel it is only right and fair that these men and women are awarded their own badge then please let us know.

You can have your say by emailing Peter Antill, at auxmedal@gmail.com
