Today a panel detailing the history of the Aux Units and postmistress Mabel Stranks was unveiled at the old Post Office in Highworth.

Me and Justin

The panel was unveiled by Justin Tomlinson, Swindon North MP and long time supporter of CART and now gives the public a real insight into the role that Mabel Stranks played and adds to the plaque that is already placed outside the former post office.

Whilst investigating a site relating to the Auxiliary Units, our research team discovered a large metal object seen above. One of our team thought it could have come from a tank so we he contacted The Tank Museum and they kindly responded. They feel it is a panel from a Vicker’s Tank circa 1923 like the one seen below.
