Thank you for selecting information on the Lethen Auxiliary Unit Patrol and their Operational Base in Scotland. The info below has been supplied by CART's Aberdeenshire CIO, Alan Stewart.

Research into this patrol and its training is ongoing. The information below is published from various sources and is by no means conclusive. If information is not listed below it does not necessarily mean the information is not out there but normally means CART researchers have not found it yet.

If you have any information on this patrol or can help with research in this area please do contact us.

Lethen is an estate, to the south on Nairn. The estate is on the edge of Darnaway Forest. The area is mostly farming in between a lot of forests, but in a key area for access roads south and to the east from Inverness. The main railwayline to Aberdeen is also in close proximity. Culbin Sands make this area the most likely for an invasion (Anti-glider poles are still visible in the sand there).

GC Capt W A Mustard, Asst GCs 2/Liet A Macdonald, Redcliffe, Lossiemouth and 2/Lieut H Collie, Mains of Struthers, Kinloss.
