Thank you to Austin J Ruddy,
Leicester, who replied:
to let you know, the Home Guard photo is most probably taken at the Home
Guard's Stand Down in October-December 1944.
This is the main time group photos were
taken, and the photo can be dated by the fact the officers are wearing
small service chevrons on their right wrists.
These were only introduced in February
1944 so the photo has to be after this date
this is of some help"
