In 1940 Britain stood alone against the might of the Germany military machine that had been rampaging around Europe since 1939 occupying Poland, the Low Countries, Denmark, Norway and part of France. British forces made a near-miraculous escape home from the continent at Dunkirk but left behind huge amounts of matériel and equipment. The British government feared invasion was likely and made plans accordingly. In addition to the well-known Home Guard, their plans included the setting up of secret ‘Auxiliary Units’ who would form a resistance organisation to engage and harass the invading forces. This is the first of four related images and shows the exit door of an underground operational base. Next image... LinkExternal link
