Verdon Besley was 16 when he joined the Sandford Auxiliary Unit Patrol in Somerset. At 18 he joined the Queen’s Royal Regiment and went all the way to Berlin where his Auxiliary training came in handy.

The Patrol’s Operational Base was inside an old lead mine in the Mendip hills. Learn more about the Sandford Patrol here: https://www.coleshillhouse.com/sandford-levy-bunker.php

Our sympathies to his family and friends. R.I.P. Verdon Besley.
