WWII British Home Guard Shoulder Titles
A pair of reproduction World War 2 British Army shoulder titles for the Home Guard.
The Local Defence Volunteers was formed in May 1940 in response to a feared German invasion of Great Britain, it was renamed the Home Guard in July 1940. It consisted of local volunteers otherwise ineligible for military service, either owing to age or by being in professions that were exempt from conscription.
Initially intended to delay an invading force long enough for regular army units to organise a counter attack. As the threat of invasion passed, the Home Guard took over various duties from regular units, allowing them to serve overseas.
Immortalised in the classic British Comedy series Dad's Army, which followed the formation and running of the Home Guard in the fictional Walmington-on-Sea.
The price is for a set of two shoulder titles.
