Help wanted: Home
Guard photographs - are they from Berkshire?
Flint, Maidenhead, Berks
through my late father-in-law's papers I found
eight photographs of the Home Guard, presumably
taken during the second World War. Because he was
born in Reading and, after his marriage in 1933,
lived in Wokingham I believe these pictures
probably have a Berkshire connection, given that
on one of the uniforms is an insignia with BRX 11.
The pictures feature about 80 men and some women.
They are all taken out of doors and some show the
men under training.
The blackboard in front
of this picture lists the following:
Crigg (or Grigg)
There were further names
hidden from the camera. If anyone can identify
any of these men I would love to hear from them.
