K. Company (Knightwick) of the 7th Worcestershire (Malvern) Battalion Home Guard. This photo has been taken of a smaller group and the Company Commander Dr. R. H. Clarke is not in this photo. Could it be that the men were split in to smaller Platoons and this was one of them? My father Ted Holland is standing second in from the left on the top row, next to him at the end of row is Toddler Rickets and fourth in from the left on the bottom row is our next door neighbor Ted Morris. This photo also shows the Company ammunition and armaments store on the bank behind the Platoon. The photograph was taken in the grounds of Woodford House, which also housed the Surgery of Dr Clarke and acted as the Company Headquarters.
