Devon Group 6 - East Devon.


The Devon nominal roll is a simple A-Z address book. The only way to identify which Auxiliers were in what Patrol is by their home address. Where Patrols are close together there maybe some question over what Patrol they were part of.

East Devon is particularly confusing as there are many Patrols within a small area and few of the men live within a single concentrated area. It appears earlier Patrols may have split, with men moving between them and new recruits joining. We have grouped the men into Patrols in the most logical way possible though there may be errors and men may have been in more than one Patrol over the duration of the War.
