About CART:

  The Coleshill Auxiliary Research Team (CART) provides an online publishing space and internal network for serious and dedicated researchers who focus on the British Resistance.

CART is made up of select volunteer historians and published writers known as County Information Officers (CIOS).

CART is not a business or an academic body of professional researchers.

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

Since CART's birth in June 2009 the website has seen over 600,000 unique visitors and has attracted TV, Radio and national press attention. More here
