An uncle Ernest White, also had a copy of this photo, of Territorial Army soldiers, of 113th Regt Royal Artillery, which at the outbreak of war were stationed in Buckingham Park , the Guns 25 Pounders were ranged onto the beach, and the Airport where landings were expected. Ernest and my father Leonard were both members of the regiment. Later in the year 1940 the Guns were moved to Dover.

I remember seeing Guns and tanks over by the airport terminal building when taken for a ride in my pushchair over the toll bridge.....they were gently swaying in the breeze and there was an armed soldier quickly moving any spectators along.
