Monmouthshire Auxiliary Units Other Info

Alan Hollingdale formed the Monmouth Auxiliers Association and the inaugural meeting was held in the Greyhound Public House, Llantrissant. There were 69 members at the first meeting. By 1993 only 8 remained. The photo below is of an early reunion, the original of which still hangs in the public bar. Other reunions were held at Coleshill House. The handful of surviving auxiliaries continue to attend reunions at the Parham Auxiliary Unit Museum in Sufffolk.
