Churchill's British Resistance - The Auxiliary Units


Kent Auxiliary Units Intelligence Officers

The first I.O for Kent was Grenadier Guards Captain Peter Fleming. He was the man responsible for setting up the Units in Kent under the name of the XII corps Observation Unit.

In late 1940 he left and a Royal Fusilier Captain Norman Field then took over as I.O. At some point in Norman's command he split Kent in two. West Kent came under the command of Captain George MacNicholl and Norman commanded East Kent.

In late 1941 Norman was taken away from the Units and Captain George MacNicholl took over as I.O. for the whole of Kent for the rest of the war.
