About us

The Coleshill Auxiliary Research Team (CART) provide an internal network for serious and dedicated researchers who focus on the British Resistance. Its members believe this history should be made public, so its findings are published on the British Resistance Archive (BRA) website.

CART consists of carefully selected volunteer historians and published writers known as County Information Officers (CIOs) and also the public, who subscribe each year as members.

CART is non-profit making and has no financial support from any company or organisation. It is funded solely by occasional small donations and the revenue it makes from the sale of various items sold in the shop.

As well as the ability to search for a relative on the BRA website, CART also provides a personalised regional search through one of its 12 County Information Officers (CIOs).

The CIOs spend many hours each year in archive centres, libraries and on-line as well as reading all the published work on the subject and networking with other researchers. This history is still very secret and a lot is still not talked about and hidden. It takes time for them to obtain the information and because of this patrol reports are updated over a period of years.
