John Fielding was picked out to be an Auxiliary when he was about 18-19 years old. He undertook his training at Coleshill House and then took his role as a secret “lay-away” (Churchill’s ‘secret army’). In 1943 when it was believed that the Germans would no longer be able to invade mainland Britain. Many of these secret lay-aways, who had shown exceptional promise, were recruited into the Commandos and into the newly formed SAS.  John was no exception and had obviously shown all the attributes that they were looking for. John subsequently joined 1st SAS B Squadron. Having done some research on the net and spoken to various people it has come to light that John was involved in the ill-fated SAS Operation Bulbasket.
