Birch and Layer Breton Home Guard.
This is also taken in the same place at the same time as PBA_137_BBB and contains some of the Auxiliary Unit which is unsual. It includes George Ward, David Macauley and Basil Rootkin in the caption. George Ward can be seen to be wearing his pistol. I believe Dick Fairhead is No. 11 in the same row alongside him as he wears a pistol and lanyard. I presume Bill and W.A. Abbott are the same man (as former again clearly wearing a pistol) and possibly R. Strathern is No.10 in the back row alongside him.
