Stewart Angell: Secret Sussex Resistance
Little is known of the ‘Auxiliary Units’ from WW2. Formed in 1940 they were to be the British Resistance, countering a German invasion by delivering guerilla warfare tactics throughout their localised areas.
Stewart Angell started researching the Sussex Auxiliary Units in 1992. Four years later following extensive interviews with original patrol members and many hours in the field looking for the remains of their secret hideouts his findings were published as ‘The Secret Sussex Resistance’ The presentation will highlight his research findings and how strategically placed Sussex would have been had the invasion taken place.
He is a founder member of the Sussex Military History Society, a longtime member the underground exploration group Subterranea Britannica and Council for British Archaeology South-East.
