Hampshire flag

The Hampshire Auxiliary Units Patrols can be divided into 10 Groups from lists recorded by Major Malcolm Hancock based at Coleshill House around September 1944. Groups 9 and 10 cover the Isle of Wight.

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.

The Hampshire 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 which Patrol the men were part of.


Hampshire had a single Headquarters in use from formation until Stand Down at 1, Brook Street, Bishops Waltham, Southampton
