It is with sadness we report the passing of Auxilier, Victor Stemp.

Victor was part of the Great Bealings Patrol.

Their training was carried out by regular army soldiers based at Framlingham, including Capt Hoberton, Sgt Barry and four privates. They learnt about setting booby traps and how to move about without being seen. Victor also remembered training with grenades at GHQ Coleshill.

Our condolences to his family.

We understand that his funeral is on Tuesday at Great Bealings and his daughter has kindly arranged for any donations to be made to the BRO (British Resistance Org) Museum

At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Today we have added info on the Ousden Special Duties Section Control Station located at Littly Wood in Suffolk. Stations on the Inner network did not have outstations of their own but rather served the purpose of gathering (and under certain circumstances relaying) information.  All these Inner network stations were in contact with one or more Control stations that were supplied with information by their own specific networks comprising a number of out and sub-outstations.

A fairly complicated set up which has been clearly explained by our researchers here

Bachelor’s Hall in Hundon, Suffolk was the first headquarters of the Special Duties Section or SDS. The top secret communication network set up to allow SDS members to report on German troop movement if we had been invaded.

The report is based primarily on information supplied by Capt Ken Ward (Royal Corps of Signals), the leader of the original TRD design team (interview 10 August 1999) and it can be read here.

We have just added information on the Ipswich II Auxiliary Unit patrol from Suffolk to the site.

The OB has sadly long gone. Apart from patrol leader Sgt Neville G Palmer in the centre, front row of the picture, they don’t know who is who in the photo and would be grateful to hear from anybody who can put names on the other men. The report, by our CIO’s Evelyn Simak and Adrian Pye.
