Home Guard, including Quorn Platoon, 1942

This photograph of the Home Guard was taken in the garden of the Bulls Head (now the Quorndon Fox), on High Street in 1942.

Quorn Home Guard was the 13th Platoon (Quorn), D Company of the 10th Leicestershires, but the various platoons from nearby villages frequently worked together. The men in this picture come from several different local platoons, including Quorn. The writing on the largest drum says ‘Rothley Home Guard’.

The only name we have so far is:
48 Cyril Antony Clarke (known as Tony Clarke)
