Colour film from Sevenoaks shows what looks like a stand down parade with various members of the CD and First Aid shown. Of particular interest is the gentlemen shown below.
He appears to be wearing an austerity pattern battledress with Sevenoaks area title. On his sleeve are three narrow bars for a Divisional / District Warden, but I think the shoulder title may be "Report & Control".
He also has Home Guard sergeant's stripes (other CD members in the film are shown wearing single and double Home Guard rank chevrons on their sleeves) and a red diamond with small bar below Home Guard Proficiency Badge on his lower left sleeve. The HG proficiency badge was initially worn on the lower right sleeve until moved after May/June 1944 so War Service Chevrons could be worn in that position.
There is also something on his epaulettes, probably slip on HG (Home Guard) tabs. The Home Guard had been stood down at the end of 1944.
Extremely rare to see this combination especially in a colour film. View the film on Screen Archive South East and the gentlemen in question appears at the 15:20 mark.
Thanks to Nick Wall for the information on the Home Guard insignia.
