Grampound Auxiliary Unit in WW2
Grampound Auxiliary Unit in WW2 (20120447)
Grampound Auxiliary Unit WW2. As with the Home Guard, the Auxiliary Units were civilians not regular soldiers but they were trained to a higher level of technical capability and it was envisaged that in the event of an invasion, they would harass and obstruct the enemy advance significantly. They were given professional training in the tactics of guerrilla warfare. They remained very secret during and well beyond the end of the war. The Grampound Auxiliary Unit had the task, in the event of an invasion, of blowing up Grampound Bridge in order to obstruct the movement of enemy troops, transport and heavy armour. They had an operational base at the north end of Trewithen Woods, now known as Barteliver Wood. Featured in this photograph are (l to r) WJ (Jack) Richards of Fore Street, HG (Harold) Cock of Moors View, Cpl SA (Sidney) Honey of Fore Street, WJM (John) Osbourne of Ringmore House, Sgt WJ (William) Knowles of Old Hill, CA (Clem) Knowles of Old Hill, IEE (Ire) Broom of Old Hill. Note that they are all carrying revolvers. More information about the Auxiliary Units can be found at Coleshill Auxiliary Research Team - http://www.coleshillhouse.com/ -. (Hicks)

African American Troops at Grampound Road 1944
African American Troops at Grampound Road 1944 (20110369)
During World War Two, around 130,000 black GIs came to Britain. They were members of the US armed forces, but kept strictly segregated from their white 'colleagues'. For the majority of the resident British population, this was their first exposure to black people en masse and to blatant racism. Public opinion was largely on the side of the black GIs. David Miles in his account of Britain in wartime quotes a West Country farmer who told a reporter from the New Statesman 'I love the Americans - but I don't like those white ones they've brought with them'.
