With the 70th Anniversary of D Day approaching here is some local interest which I hope the community at large can assist with. The Catherington Home Guard did sterling work patrolling the community, and would have been very much on the front line in the event of invasion. This photo dating from 1941 in front of the Farmer Inn shows the troop.
I would very much like to hear from any relatives who can shed more light on any of the local platoons, and also to see if there are any more photographs about of them in action. Who were they? What were their day jobs? Did anything of note happen? Click on the photo to enlarge.
