WW2 British Home Guard Pocket Manual

"Don't tell him, Pike!"

The Home Guard was a defence organisation of the British Army during the Second World War. Operational from 1940 until 1944, the Home Guard had 1.5 million local volunteers who were otherwise ineligible for military service, usually owing to age. This lead to the nickname (and the name of the famous British TV Show), "Dad's Army".

The Home Guard acted as a secondary defence force, stationed in Britain in case of invasion by the forces of Nazi Germany and their allies. They guarded the coastal areas of Britain and other important places such as airfields, factories and ammunition stores.

By 1943 the Home Guard even operated its own dedicated batteries of anti-aircraft guns are credited with shooting down numerous Luftwaffe aircraft and the V-1 flying bombs in the summer of 1944. 

These 72 page manuals were given to members of the Home Guard, and feature such information as cleaning and firing weapons, safety precautions on the range, company drills and much, much more. An essential for your Home Guard impression.
