Wollaston Home Guard

1940s

Many men who were too old to be called into the armed forces during the war together with those in restricted occupations formed a company of the Home Guard in 1940.  In this photograph there are just some of the 232 members of D Company of the 10th Worcestershire Battalion.  Their commander was Major Frank Heijl who ran a tailors and furriers business at 149 Bridgnorth Road, on the corner Duncombe Street.  Training took place in the old Eggington Farm buildings.
