Portrait of a member of the Mobile Reserve from West Sussex. The Mobile Reserve was created early in the war to provide a rapid response convoy to attend at incidents. It was copied elsewhere as the Regional Columns in the 12 Civil Defence regions. The badge features "W.S." & "C.C." (West Sussex County Council), the county emblem (six martlets or heraldic swallows on a shield) and "MOBILE RESERVE".
The photo along, with another of the same gentleman, is currently on eBay.
