Home Guard 1939 to 1945

The following photograph is of the local Home Guard during the second World War,
there are a few Dallowgill people on there. If anyone has the names to fill in the ‘unknown’ slots then please get in touch with the website, it would be good to have them all.

Thank you

Sheep Marks, Farms and Farmers in Carlsmoor and Dallowgill 1913

The Shepherd’s Guide is a book illustrating and describing the sheep marks used for sheep turned out onto the moors to graze, to identify who they belong to. The marks consist of paint marks on the wool, ear marks [bits cut off!] and hornburns of initials. The Discover Dallowgill History Project has a copy of the 1913 edition, which is available at meetings. The following files give the information sorted by various criteria and as a result, supply a list of who was at each farm in 1913.
