    Default Home Guard Collection

    Very pleased to be recently given this small haul of items belong to Lt Col. Norman Wright, Ayrshire Home Guard. This was given to me by members of his family. The training books are very interesting. I especially like (visible in the final photograph showing German parachutist) the statement that 'adolescent enemy agents may be dropped in the uniform of boy scouts'. You can imagine Captain Mainwaring thinking something like that.
