Can you identify members of Hilsea depot home guard?

You might struggle with this scene but it is in fact looking across Waite Street, Cosham. The tram is heading for Spur Road.  Picture: Barry Cox Collection

NOSTALGIA: When trams ran through the fire station’s offices at Cosham

This photograph comes to Remember When from Margate, Kent.

However, it shows the men of No 8 Platoon (workshops) of the Hilsea Depot Home Guard in Portsmouth.

It is undated.

It was sent to me by Bob Adderley, of Clarence Parade, Southsea, a former chairman of the Portsmouth Society, who received it from Eve Twyman.

She in turn had found it in the postcard collection of her late husband who was a founder of the Margate Historic Society.

Now she would like to be able to put names to the faces. Can you help?
