13th Battalion North Riding Home Guard – December 1944

Mrs. Richards father, Second Lieutenant H. Grange, is second from the left on the back row. The back of the photograph is signed by Lieutenant Colonel Franklin and has all the names on it. It has been scanned and published to the post below.

Eric Johnson told us: ’The young lady in the centre (Battalion Typist) Miss Doreen Noble later married Ron Thomas Steward of Loftus Club, later landlord of the Angel Inn of Loftus Market Place.’

Sheena Scott tells us: ’Lovely to see a photograph of my Gran when she was younger. I am Doreen’s granddaughter and am married to a Captain in 2YORKS (previously Green Howard’s) currently posted to Cyprus.’

Graham Suggett makes an appeal: “As we seem to be in a Home Guard mood, can I appeal for help, please? My Uncle Joseph (Joe) White was in the 13th North Riding Battalion (Loftus)] Home Guard.
Try as I might, however, I cannot find any information, let alone a photograph of the squaddies in the unit, though I do have a picture of Joe himself in uniform.”
Can anybody assist with Graham’s quest?

  • Hi.
    As we seem to be in a Home Guard mood, can I appeal for help, please?
    My Uncle Joseph (Joe) White was in the 13th North Riding Battalion (Loftus)] Home Guard.
    Try as I might, however, I cannot find any information’ let alone a photograph of the squaddies in the unit, though I do have a picture of Joe himself in uniform.
    I am happy to share this but do not know how to get it posted.
    Season’s Greetings
    Graham Suggett
