Here's an absolutely cracking photo of two Civil Defence members (possibly at war's end). Of interest is the chap on the right and the location of his Incident Officer (I.O.) sleeve badge on the 'incorrect' arm. The official location was on the right sleeve but here we have the badge above the war service chevrons (looks like five red chevrons so backs up a possible stand down photograph). The gentleman also has two Instructor badges pinned to his collar; I have never seen that before. I cannot make out a badge on his side cap.
The first world war veteran on the left has two rank chevrons. The area title is for "Durham County".
