Age group

Kev55
Hi,
I'm very interested in learning as much about the Auxiliary as possible, and was wondering if there was a particular age group considered for Auxiliary enrolment, or was age a secondary consideration, and patrols had a wide range of ages, abilities being paramount. Kev

Hi Kev,

Nice to see you are keen to learn more.

The men were mainly picked due to the fact that they knew the land well. Most were farmers etc and would be fit. Age was not the main concern more local awareness and fitness.

If you want to get involved in some research do please email us hq@coleshillhouse.com
Kind Regards,
