The British Resistance in Wales

Until 25th February 2012
This exhibition tells the history of the British Resistance movement during the Second World War. Carefully selected men were enlisted and trained as guerilla soldiers. If the Nazi attack had been successful, their mission was to sabotage their advance through Britain. Their role was secret and even wives were unaware of their husbands jobs until much later in the 20th century. These auxiliary units were supported by Special Duties Section, selected from the civilian population and trained to carry and receive important messages across the countryside.
