I am trying to find out if my father was a recruit - he was in the Home Guard during World War II but never talked much about the war. He passed away some years ago and it would be good to find out if he was involved so I can tell his grandchildren. Is there a list of names that I could look at to find out more please? Any information greatfully received. Thanks.
Is it possible to contact Shirley who has left a message here regarding her father in the home guard as I have a similar situation and wonder if they knew each other. email@example.com.
basically the exact same as Shirley, I wanted to contact her to see if our fathers would have known each other and why she thinks he may have been linked to the auxillary units the same as my father who was also in the homeguard in oxfordshire and away for weeks at a time.
