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)

Watercolour view over village 1980's (20112264)
A view of Grampound in watercolour from the top of Old Hill. The artist was Edith Hardaker and it is believed that it was executed in the 1980s. Edith Hardaker only took up painting when she retired at 70 but quickly became so accomplished in watercolour work that she taught classes in the subject. As the mother of Peter Hardaker, she was a frequent visitor to Grampound and painted many views of the village and surrounding area. (Lundie)

Property sale catalogue of July 1919
Property sale catalogue of July 1919 (20100225)
This collection consists of the scanned images of the pages of a property sale catalogue of July 1919, together with the maps that allow the location of each of the lots to be determined. The vendor was George Horace Johnstone Esq of Trewithin and it was held at 11.00 am on Saturday 12th July 1919 at the ‘Schools, Grampound’. Front cover of catalogue. This artefact was made available by Leonie Crowe (nee Spry). She believes that it came originally from the possessions of her Aunt and Uncle, Gertrude and Jabez Pollard who lived at Polman (opposite the Town Hall). The marginal notes were probably made by Jabez Pollard and he appears to have signed the top of the inside front page and several other pages. (Crowe (nee Spry))
