Shiptonthorpe Home Guard
This photograph was kindly supplied by James Gibson who has researched the photograph and provided the names. Shiptonthorpe Home Guard No 5 Platoon was formed in 1940 and made up a section of the East Riding 4th Battalion. The Home Guard met twice a week, Tuesday nights and Sunday mornings, they were also involved in various training exercises. They met at what was known locally as ‘the hut’, a former WW1 hut that had been purchased originally for the W.I. The Hut (Pictured behind the Home Guard) stood on the site of the village hall car park on Station Road. If you can add any further names please contact me here.
