Home Guard Hero

Issue Number: 5126

First they called them the Local Defence Volunteers, but then they became the Home Guard. But the name didn’t matter to the thousands of volunteers aged between sixteen and sixty-five who enrolled in 1940 to help Britain face the Nazi menace.

Men like veteran First World War marksman Alec Fraser and his squad. Based on a tiny Scottish island, they would take on all comers… and even pit their wits against a killer U-boat and her tough crew!
