Pocklington Home Guard in 1940

This photograph of the Pocklington Home Guard was taken behind the old drill hall in Barmby Road and was kindly submitted by Kevin Warcup. His Uncle Eric is on the photograph as indicated. Please Let me know any names of individuals. I have since been informed that Lieutenant Samuel H King is on the photograph. Thanks to an interview with Wm.Brown by Jim Ainscough many names have been filled.
