1st Pembrokeshire Battalion-
Photo of the Officers of the Home Guard


Many thanks to Major R. W. Cullen (retired) for sending us this excellent group photo of the Officers of the 1st Pembrokeshire Battalion. It includes his father, Lt. W. C Cullen, who is featured in the photo on the top right. With the release of the new film version of' Dad's Army', it seems very appropriate!

The photo is labelled with the names of the officers, so CLICK HERE (or click on the photo) to get a very large version where you can see faces and read the names of each. Be sure to scroll all the way both horizontally and vertically to see al of the names. This is a great image. Perhaps you can spot someone from your family or the school. If so, please email us and tell us of your connections.

We have a Memories section where we are always looking for more contributions from past pupils, or their family members.
