Home Guard

Postby smitd09 » Wed Aug 04, 2010 1:25 pm

Does anyone have any information on the formation of the 12 Battalions that served under the Worcestershire Regiment badge.
In particular the one that covered Evesham and surrounding area.

Photos, names and stories will be all welcome

Thanks

Are you aware of the book The Defence of Worcestershire in World War II? Its by Mick Wilks, there is a lot of information in it re the LDV and Home Guard

Having obtained a copy of Mick Wilks book, I can say thank you for the recommendation.

I am still keen to find more out about the 4th btn home guard that looked after Evesham and the surrounding area, which gets a passing mention in Wilks.
Does anyone have any photos of the 4th .. Wilks' book has Redditch & Malvern, even Bromsgrove and Kiddie, but no pictures of my dad's battalion.

Any help gratefully received
