We have the opportunity to restore an Operational Base in Kent. Due to the nature of the work, and the fact that certain members of the public like to go and destroy these precious time capsules, the location is a closely guarded secret.

We are calling the project Operation Turnip as many of the patrols in Kent were named after vegetables.

Phil Evans, our CIO for Kent, will manage the work on the ground and CART HQ will oversea the project and fund raise.

A small team of experts will be called upon to advise on the restoration and we will use our own internal archive and researchers knowledge around the UK to fit out the OB as authentically as possible.

We hope to then open the space at certain times of the year for guided tours, press calls and to allow re-enactors to stay inside.

We suggest you bookmark this page to follow our work.

We are pleased to announce that Phil Evans has been appointed as our County Information Officer (CIO) for Kent and Andy Gwynne is our new CIO for Yorkshire.

Both Andy and Phil have already been CART members for sometime and have contributed in many ways to our research. We now have 13 CIO’s researching for us around the UK.

We wish them all the best with their forthcoming work and we will be supporting them in anyway we can. Their research will be published on our website in due course.

Ron Martin, a Kent Auxilier, has spoken out today about his time in the Auxiliary Units. He hopes that it will encourage other Auxiliers to come forward and share their knowledge.

CART researcher Phil Evans has been a friend of Ron’s for a long time and asked him if he would kindly help with our work and talk to the press.

CART organised a members trip to The Garth earlier this year and Ron popped along to chat to us. A truly humbling day for us all.

Thanks Ron for ‘doing ya bit.’

CART researcher, Phil Evans has submitted two new pages of research to us for inclusion on the site.

These are the Kent’s Dymchurch and Snargate patrols. They both had code names. One was Mushroom and the other Toadstool.
