Mr Frank Ball of the Home Guard

Postby muckaroon1960 » Tue Apr 02, 2019 10:21 pm

Nice certificate I picked up recently to a Mr Frank Ball who served 4 years 205 days in the Home Guard. The certificate also came with a photo, a very large photo of the 128 (101 C. of L. HG) Rocket A.A. Battery , R.A October 1944. I asked the seller where this guy was on the picture and he said "there" and laughed as if to say no idea. The picture had come from a house clearance and that's why he wanted to sell both together. Well with a bit of detective work and X marks the spot one can assume the chap with the glasses is Mr Frank Ball. I'm assuming that this is the 101st county of London Home Guard Anti Aircraft Battery. More research required and there maybe is available a unit history "101 Up!" Might be worth trying to find a copy. :thumbsup:
