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.

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
