Long-lost bunker belonging to ‘Churchill’s secret army’ discovered in Scottish forest | Live Science

Must Read

Forestry workers in Southern Scotland discovered a door in the ground while felling trees. The door led to a secret WWII-era bunker created for the secretive and elite British Auxiliary Units. The Auxiliary Units, also known as Churchill’s secret army, was created to defend against Nazi attacks using guerilla warfare. Hundreds of tiny bunkers were scattered across the countryside, designed to hold a unit made up of eight men or less. The units and bunkers were such a well-kept secret and had almost no records kept that many of the bunker locations are still unknown to this day. The newly discovered bunker is 23 feet long and 10 feet wide and would house soldiers for months at a time. Just like during WWII, the exact location of the bunker won’t be revealed to the public and is still being examined by the AOC Archaeology Group.
