UNUSUAL WW2 ATC / HOME GUARD GROUPING HELL'S CORNER DOVER 1941

Unusual if not Unique WW2 home front grouping
Consisting of the following items-

National Association of Spotters Clubs Certificate
To -"R HOGBEN Esq"
140 ATC Dover (Hell's Corner) South Eastern Region
Dated September 1941
Confirming that R Hogben could identify -
"Not less than 80% of Aeroplanes chosen from 62 types"

2 X Illustrated "Aircraft & Raid Spotters " note books

Small typed slip of paper confirming that-
"Mr R.E Hogben served in the 8th Cinque Ports Battalion
Kent Home Guard from 1st January -15th September 1941"

Chrome ATC Beret Badge
1st type Observer Corps Button Hole Badge
Home Guard Shoulder Title
East Kent District S/East Command Div sign

I assume R Hogben joined one of the Regular Services
Later on during the war

Nice little lot as found
Worthy of further research (If poss)
Hogben is an old English name predominantly seen in Kent
