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

I'm always interested in seeing photos of the Home Guard and hearing about their experiences - thank you.

Lower Halstow Almanac

I would very much like to know if it is possible to obtain a copy of the Almanac hanging in the church at Lower Halstow, as my mother, Joyce Durrant and grandfather, Albert Durrant, are named on there several times.  If it is of interest to this Forum I have a photograph of Albert in his Home Guard uniform.

I remember my mother telling me that when the Home Guard met up her father, Albert, had her ride around on her bicycle with some sort of trailer attached and the men would throw mock grenades to practice their aim at a moving target!
