News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

My grandfather, Philip Hubert was in No.13 (Henley) Platoon of the 17th Battalion, Kent Home Guard.
Amongst his pictures, I've attached one showing the platoon at Henley's with my grandfather 3rd from the right in the second row from the front.
The other was taken, I'm told, where Gravesend Asda is now.
I'll get some other names from the photos next time I see him.
