Jack was enrolled into Aux Units in 1942 at 16 years of age. Later he became a Bevin Boy in the South Wales coal mines.
CART was delighted to receive a visit from Jack when we attended the Broadmayne WW2 event in 2016. (Broadmayne was marshalling area D5 in south Dorset prior to D-Day).
The Child Okeford Operational Patrol was based in north Dorset near the military town of Blandford Forum. https://www.coleshillhouse.com/child-okeford-auxiliary-unit-patrol.php
His service will be at Poole Crematorium on Monday 25th November at 2pm. Rest in peace Jack.
