News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

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.
