Donate Information

CART preserves and archives information about the Auxiliary Units, Special Duties Section and the British Resistance Movement.

If you have anything you feel is relevant to this research, no matter how small, please contact us. You may recognise some of the items below.

We display film, video, audio, printed documents and pictures and we have a team of researchers around the UK who collect and submit this back to our head office.

We always credit the source of our information and are also happy to offer a web link if required.

In order for us to use any information we have to have your permission and we understand that some material may be more personal than others so we operate a traffic light system with regards to copyright.



RED: The file is for CART HQ eyes only. I would rather it was not made public.

AMBER: This file is OK for CART researchers to see only. I understand that this will not be made public or added to the main CART website.

GREEN: This file is free to share and use publicly with no restrictions other than a credit of ownership to be shown below the file when it is reproduced.



You will maintain full copyright on the item(s) you donate to us.

We also record telephone interviews with Auxiliers or related parties. If you feel you have something to say rather than give then please also get in touch.

Thank you.
