I suppose they did: as in Dad's Army. A fine portrait Les
Les Auld: Thanks Chris, the hall was in the Yorkshire Air museum behind glass, it has come out better than I expected.

Excellent picture making again. You continue to take one back to those years.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, appreciate the comment.
You would think you were there at the time smile
Les Auld: Working on that idea Linda, thanks for the comment.
Fine shot. My Dad was in the Home Guard, he worked on the land at the time which was a protected occupation.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, the Home Guard is frequently under appreciated, Dad's Army has a lot to answer for.
A fine shot of history Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, appreciate the comment.
Front line troops
Les Auld: If the hall can be called front line I suppose Bill, thanks for the comment.
