  • My father, Selwyn “Taffy” Samuel, was in the F and P Home Guard but I cannot recognise him in the photo. He told many tales about their times on duty.

    Ed: Gwyneth, many thanks for looking at our website. As I mentioned earlier, the photo supplied by others is only a thumbnail size and therefore will not enlarge. Regrettable, but there we are! John B

  • Could I see a higher resolution copy of this photograph. I am looking for Les Wheeler.



    Ed: Regrettably, we do not retain the original photograph and as this image is thumbnail size it will loose its identity once enlarged.  John B

  • Arthur WILLIAMS, back row, 4th from the right. More of his details are on the “The Williams Family” page. I recall Dad telling me how they were on duty one time and someone accidentally let fall a grenade down into the shelter they were using. He told me how quickly they all scattered not knowing the grenade was harmless!
