I notice Stan has three stripes. Which outfit was he a sergeant in, I wonder?
Was Stan in The Home Guard?
Great photo. I will look forward to learning more about him.
Nice snappy photo; good quick post, we willlearn more later.
I love a man in uniform. Super pic.
i like uncle stan's hat
Very, very "Bing". Stan is cute.
Stan, the man. he looks dapper and very confident. Can't wait to hear more.
He wears his beret with great panache!
Handsome man, your Uncle Stan...will await further details.
His expertise was probably very important to get the war machines ready for battle. It would be a waste to take him away from what he could do so well.
great life,Best wishes!

Yes, I think that is a Home Guard uniform, I recognise it because my father too was in the Home Guard. It might even predate the Home Guard name (previous to August 1940 they were known as the LDV or Local Defence Volunteers. My father was in the LDV as well and always claimed that the initials stood for Look Duck and Vanish.
I left an award for you over at mine today. Love your photos! Sue
