Advanced Training for the Home Guard

This is another of the Home Guard pamphlets which were used for training purposes during the Second World War. This covers a set of ten specific exercises, each of which is described in full and accompanied by a sketch map of the exercise. The book covers wood clearing, defence of a vulnerable position, an attack on a farm, holding a fortified street against a mobile enemy, the defence of a bridge, the defence of a factory, an attack with machineguns and grenades, attacking airborne troops, and two tactical exercises in response. It gives the flavour of Home Guard thought at the time and shows that the accepted picture of the Home Guard gleaned from TV is not entirely accurate.
