We would like to pass on our best wishes to Don Brown who has recently been taken ill. Don contributed to our Aux research for the Somerset Scout Section which can be found here:
He is the author of Somerset v Hitler (Secret Operations in the Mendips 1939-1945).
Don also organised a meeting of ex-Auxiliers at Charterhouse near Cheddar in 1995, where they were finally given their Defence medals.
Best wishes Don, from all at CART.

North Somerset Scout Section 3We have added a new report on the North Somerset Scout Section to the site.

The role of the Scout sections was to assist in training the Auxiliary Unit Patrols as well as being a fighting Patrol themselves. In many places they also helped with the construction of Operational Bases and distributing concealed arms dumps.

This research was largely been carried out by Donald Brown, author of ‘Somerset v. Hitler.’ and has been updated and added to by Nina Hannaford our CIO for Devon.

You can read the report here.

Today we have added some new info to the site.

Donald Brown, Author of Somerset versus Hitler has written a piece for the site which can be seen here

He talks about how Coleshill helped to train the Aux Unit members in and around Somerset. Donald has also provided many new bunker images from his area and they can be seen at the bottom of the Bunker Page

Donald also supplied us with the training notes and tests that where given to recruits at Coleshill. We have uploaded these to this page

If you have any other worthwhile info please do email it to us at coleshillhouse@gmail.com
