HOME GUARDS KEEP WATCH ON A NAZI DIVE BOMBER This remarkable picture turned up at Rye Auction Galleries. It shows a Home Guard contingent (possibly from Rye) who were first on the scene when a Stuka Dive Bomber made a forced landing in a field near Pett on August 31st. 1940.
Some of the faces look familiar, can readers identify who these lads were? Other photographs in the same batch show the Benenden Home Guard in a group picture and two other shots of German aircraft brought down “Somewhere in Southern England”
