Carlton Miniott Home Guard 'Winding Up'

This is the Home Guard unit for Carlton Miniott, a village just outside Thirsk. The photograph is titled Winding Up, indicating that it was probably taken shortly before the entire Home Guard was disbanded.

The names of the individuals in this group are not recorded here, but it is possible some of them are featured in a poem written by one of the Home Guard members about his comrades (see below).
