OUR DISPLAY

Exhibition NEW FOR 2015 - We displayed some of our research in the tent and provided the background to the various patrols around the UK. 

  • The public viewed a scale model of an Operational Base. 
  • Watched footage inside a base and other films we have made.
  • Searched our archive and spoke to our experts.

Re-Enactors - The public met the Kilham Patrol and members of the Parham Patrol Aux Re-enactment groups from Yorkshire & Suffolk.

  • They demonstrated armed and un-armed combat. 
  • Conducted blank firing and pyrotechnic displays on both days.
  • The public also discussed the weapons issued to the patrols. 
 

Weapons Display - Bill & Flora King and Peter Antill displayed various weapons & explosives used by the Auxiliary Units. This provided the public with a great chance to interact with the items used by the patrols and ask any questions.
