About the memorial: It could be argued that this should not be here as no-one died. Indeed these units, trained to go underground in the event of a German invasion, were never called into action. But those who volunteered for the unit did so in the knowledge that if they were called into action, their chance of survival was non-existent. That devotion deserves to be recognised. The photograph is on the north wall of the gallery. It is not in the IWM Archive, either because the IWM researcher did not find it among a large collection of photos in the gallery, or for the reasons indicated in the first sentence.
