Chillerton Patrol

Weapons and Equipment

The Patrol used a large water collection cistern in the yard at Chillerton Farm as an ammunition store. After the war this was being used to dispose of rubbish and was set alight until the men remembered that there were still detonators inside and they had to quickly douse the flames.

Other information

The Patrol composition is based on the addresses of the men and a photo taken at the Wellow Inn at the time of the Group Stand Down photo.
