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, and 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.

A picture of Henry Green can be seen here.

This is thanks to his daughter’s family in the United States, his daughter having married an American serviceman towards the end of 1944 while he was serving in the New Forest, before returning stateside after the war with his bride. Henry Green also went to the USA with his wife and other daughter
