Worcestershire Group 1(b)


Worcestershire (Groups 1a and 1b) formed part of area 19 which also included Herefordshire, Monmouthshire (Group 3) and latterly from 1943 part of Glamorganshire (Groups 4a and 4b).

Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Monmouthshire Patrols were given Biblical code names. It is assumed this was an initiative of Todd to prevent the use of Patrols locations names.

Group 1b Patrols used Group Commander Roger Smith's house at Commandry Farm or Area Commander Captain Lewis van Moppes home Wolverton Hall as their Headquarters.
