  • Short Summary

    Good shots of the men of the Home Guard training - not really Dad's Army.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "The Home Guard".

    VS good shots of men of the Home Guard marching through streets learning semaphore signalling, training as motorcycle despatch riders and boarding and moving off in army lorries - good shots to show the type of men in the Home Guard and to illustrate its function.

    N.B. Some of them are wearing armbands of the LDV - Local Defence Volunteers.
