  • Fifth from left is Paddy Bennett (2nd.Lt.), my father in law, whose bravery was mentioned in The London Gazette. He went on to become Chairman /CEO of Greenwoods Transport.

  • Yes, I knew four of these ‘Dads Army’ gentlemen, who did ‘sign-in’. Mr Judd and I recognise Messrs Davies, Fuller and Tredwell, who coincidentally are also shown in the posting ‘EEB Civic Square (Day Trip)’.

  • Has anyone been able to match the names in the letter to the men in the photograph. I am certain the man at the end of the back row on the left is my grandfather, Harry Mason, as it is as I   remember him and matches any photographs I have of him. However, there is no corresponding signature. I know he was in the Tilbury Homeguard during the Second World War.
