Today we added some info on the Worcestershire Aux Group Leaders and the Van Moppes brothers to the site.

Most of this info has come from a published book but the addition of some never before seen documents by a member of the public has brought the page alive.

These include his military ID, certificates indicating he was an explosives specialist, a volume of Military Engineering-Demolitions 1942, a detailed hand drawn map of an area near Droitwich with railway and canal bridges marked, presumably for possible demolition.  And one or two other documents from very senior military personnel giving him authority to move unimpeded and to use E Petrol coupons.

Edmund died in 1988 and his son Nicolas was killed in an air crash in 1979 aged 42. As yet CART has not been able to establish if there are descendants.
