Letter: Research has unearthed Shiptonthorpe home guard picture

I’ve recently been doing a little research on the Market Weighton and Shiptonthorpe Home Guard.

My great grandad Harry Gibson was Staff Sergeant in the former.I have been wondering if anyone has any information or photos of either of these platoons.

I have managed to find a copy of the Shiptonthorpe Company photo, pictured above. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
