Thank you for selecting information on the Ringwood C Auxiliary
Unit Patrol located in Hampshire. The info below has been compiled by Dr Will Ward CART CIO for
Research into this patrol and its training is ongoing. The information below is published
from various sources and is by no means conclusive. If information is not
listed below it does not necessarily mean the information is not out there but normally means
CART researchers have not found it yet.
If you have any information on this patrol or can help with research in this area please do
The patrol was part of Group 1 in Hampshire, Commanded by Captain A J Champion, who was also area commander for
all the West Hampshire groups. The assistant commander of Group 1 was Lt L D C Ayles.
Not known by CART.

The patrol names for the west of Hampshire and the New Forest have been identified from National Archives file
WO199/3391, but are not divided by patrol. The nominal roll gives the surname, initials, ID card number and
address, together with date of birth. The patrols have been arranged according to the addresses and ID card numbers
around known patrol leaders. This means the allocations may not be completely accurate. Additional personal
information such as first names and dates of death have been added using the 1911 census, Ancestry.com and
FreeBMD.com. Some men, particularly those from the Ringwood area where there are several patrols, could not be
allocated with any confidence to one patrol or another, so are listed here.
Only the patrol leader is known for this patrol. There were other members, but the home addresses overlap with
those of the Ringwood B patrol, making it difficult to know which men were in which unit. Unusually the patrol
leader appears to have only joined the Home Guard in July 1942, so it may be that there was another patrol leader
prior to this who was left. Since both Capt Champion and Lt Ayles came from Ringwood, it is possible that one of
them originally commanded this unit.
The location of the Operational base is not yet known.
Unknown at this time.
