Initially Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire were grouped together and administered from the H.Q at Penllwyn Park, Carmarthen by the Intelligence Officer Captain J.C. Crawley.

Carmarthenshire was later to become part of Area 20 along with part of Glamorganshire and Pembrokeshire .

Before stand down it is recorded that Carmarthenshire is part of Region 4 along with the whole of the South West Peninsular and Wales and the final Intelligence Officer was Major W W Harston based in Ashburton in Devon.

There were some changes in Patrols and personnel over time and the Group structure did not exist earlier in the war, but it provides a useful way to look at the Patrols.
