This month's collaborative article: Home Guard
Take part in this month's topics by adding a message in the Forum at the bottom of this page. The latest subjects are Remembrance Tributes, Home Guard and Conscription, and over the next four weeks you can tell us your favourite memories or stories of these.
Tell us your memories of being in the Home Guard:
- What made you join the Home Guard?
- Were you posted in the town or in the country?
- Were you a 'Land Defence Volunteer'?
- Were you given a uniform, or did you have to 'make do'?
- What can you remember about your duties? Were you called upon in times of crisis?
- How long were the shifts? What were other Home Guards in your platoon like?
- What was the most memorable event? The funniest? The most frightening?
- Did the show Dad's Army ring true for you?
By leaving a short message here, be it a story of your own or one related to you by a friend or a relative, you will be able to contribute to a collaborative article for the WW2 homepage.
Three new topics will be available next month.
