Staithes Coastguards Presentation

The Coastguards group are outside Staithes village hall and the certificates were from the R.S.P.C.A. for an animal rescue.

We have some of the names of the men in the photograph: 1. ??, 2. ??, 3. Harry Reed, 4. Rev. B. Tatham, 5. ??, 6. ??, 7. Norman Conn, 8. ??, 8. ??, 9. George Hugill, 10. ??.

Margaret Verrill Craggs tells: “George Hugill was my uncle. His son Edward Verrill Hugill lives in Marske.” Lesley Short adds: “Harry Reed was my uncle, married to my mother’s sister. I visited Staithes with my mother, father and brother during the early 1960s. Wonderful memories.” Whilst Dorothy Smith (nee Reed) advises: “My father is Harry Reed pictured here, we moved to Staithes just after the war for my Dad to serve with the Coastguard and live in the Coastguards house on Cliff Road. Thank you very much for the photograph.” Can someone add more details, please?
