HISTORY

The Home Guard and Bevin Boys are normally represented each year on Remembrance Sunday and take part in the march past the Cenotaph on Whitehall.

10 years ago the Museum of the British Resistance Organisation started a campaign to try and get Auxiliers marching but for a few reasons this did not end up happening.

In 2011 CART renewed the campaign and on 26th March 2013 permission was granted by the British Legion for representatives to march that November. The marching contingent now march in the military group behind the Home Guard.
