CART - Coleshill Auxiliary Research Team

The Coleshill Auxiliary Research Team (CART) are a group of volunteer researchers and supporters who investigate and record the World War 2 Auxiliary Units. Findings are published on the British Resistance Archive website here at and constantly being updated.

Coleshill Auxiliary Research Team (CART) was formed in 2009 when founder Tom Sykes began looking into the Auxiliary Units that were trained at the HQ, Coleshill House, near Highworth, Wiltshire.

To date we have all known Auxiliary Unit members recorded including operational Auxiliers, Intelligence Officers, Scout Sections, Headquarters staff along with Special Duties operators, ATS and Royal Signals.

In 2019 thanks to sponsorship from the Gerry Holdsworth Special Forces Charitable Trust, and a huge re-build of our website, we are now starting to cover the men and women from the SOE and the SAS.
