Northumberland Auxiliary Unit Group
The original AU Leader was Capt J "Peter" Robinson from Elford with early meetings at the farm and in
Lambert Carmichael was the leader of the north Northumberland area and over all commander of 202 in
Northumberland his brother Alan Carmichael was the leader in mid Northumberland and Robert Hall was the leader.
Lambert Carmichael did two periods of guard duty for the Royal family at Balmoral. We assume his patrol went as
well though we can't confirm this. That would have been the Allerdene cell (O.B. not found as yet). He said the
present Queen remembered him on the second visit as the "Tweedside Farmer". He also went grouse shooting around the
Balmoral estate with the then King (George). The guard duty was to watch for German paratroops, there was a theory
that they would try to kidnap or kill the King at Balmoral in order to demoralise the public.
This info came from an interview with Lambert Carmichael in 1968.
