As you may or may not know Mabel Stranks, Highworth’s Post Mistress during the war, was responsible for vetting all the men that trained at Coleshill.

A few years ago her family were presented with a plaque (Seen Below) by Highworth Town Council.

As you can see the spelling of Auxiliary is incorrect and I have contacted the Mayor of Highworth and the Council about getting this corrected.

In my view it is a dishonour to Mabel and her family as well as the Aux Unit.

The Mayor has assured me it will be raised at the next town meeting.

If you feel you would also like to write to them on this issue please see info at the bottom of this page

I will keep you posted.
