Several Boston Auxiliers recall being recruited by George Johnson of the Lincolnshire Regiment.
Donald Hamiliton-HIll mentions Sergeant Johnson as being with him in Lincolnshire and subsequently on SOE Operation Ringlet.
His son recalled that he had been trained to blow the dykes in low lying Lincolnshire, flooding the land and slowing the German advance.
Before joining Auxiliary Units he had fought in the the campaign in Norway in 1940.
He then went on to work with Tito's Partisan fighters, in Italy and Yugoslavia, training them to use captured weapons and ammunition.
After the war he worked as traffic foreman on Boston Docks and rose to the rank of Company Sergeant Major in the Territorial Army, staying in touch with some of the men he had recruited in 1940.
