Your Home Guard Needs You!
Pay attention at the back. The Northamptonshire Home Guard Living History Group are looking to recruit new members!
Formed in 2005, the group aims to honour and keep alive the memory of those who formed the many different Home Guard battalions throughout Northants to defend us locally during the Second World War. This is achieved by attending several 1940’s and commemorative events throughout the country, manning displays, talking to the public, and demonstrating drilling, parades, and bayonet practice.
Due to the increased demand of the group at events, they are looking for new recruits and to ensure the group has a future as long serving members retire. Anyone aged 17 and older can join, who has an interest in history and authentic representation, ideally has own transport to attend events. The group meet monthly in the winter months to plan for summer events. No previous experience necessary as training given in the first year probation period.
The group also has a Women’s Home Guard division so any ladies are welcome to join as well.
Details of the group can be found on northamptonshirehomeguard.org.uk or visit their pages on Facebook or Twitter. If you are interested in joining the group please contact the group via email or phone as follows:
