Carolyn Wilde, Secretary of Burleydam and District WI, has received an appeal for a photo of A, B or C Company 14th Battalion Cheshire Home Guard — Burleydam — taken in March 1943. (These details were supplied by the searcher).

The grandson of William George Houlding has a copy of the photo of D Company and his grandfather is not in that one. He hopes he may have been in the photo of one of the other three companies.
