World War 2 Fortnight


From the 1st to 12th June Ryedale Folk Museum hosts events with a Second World War theme. Land Army Girls , the Home Guard and American G.I's will all be coming at various times to re-enact and enrich our knowledge of life during the Second World War.

Today's picture is of a local volunteer, Les Davison, in 1943/44. He, like many other men, served in the Home Guard. The picture was taken at Hutton-le Hole. Les was one of the first volunteers at Ryedale Folk Museum.
