This is coolbert:

The Auxiliaries.

From the BBC:

"Churchill's 'secret army' against Nazi invasion"

"This Sunday, people across Britain will remember those who sacrificed their lives for the country in World War Two."

"And it will be a particularly poignant day for Winston Churchill's 'secret army', who will be parading at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday for the first time."

Those men of the secret army, 3,500 strong during the Second World War, organized into guerrilla units of about a dozen men each, existing during daytime in underground shelters, sallying forth during hours of darkness to wreak havoc on the German invader, IF AND WHEN AN ACTUAL INVASION OF BRITAIN HAD OCCURRED.

That the Auxiliary Force did exist is common knowledge and has been so for many decades. An expedient measure as adopted by the English in case of German invasion and conquest. A military force incognito able to continue the resistance to the German.

Men armed with dagger, pistol, grenades, and trained in explosives.

And troops too having had to sign THE OFFICIAL SECRETS ACT. That legal document binding on them TO THIS VERY DAY.

Men whose mission during the war was secret, regrettably some of them perceived as being slackers or shirkers. This NOT BEING SO!

One such commander of an auxiliary unit being the famous English actor Anthony Quayle. Always reticent about this WW2 activities, and obviously for good reason. A man who portrayed the partisan fighter in the movie "Guns of Navarone" and ideally suited for the role.

German invasion of England, 1940, as feared by many, probably not succeeding AS LONG AS THE LUFTWAFFE UNABLE TO ATTAIN AIR SUPREMACY.
