Haworth WR28 Home Guard.

Haworth WR28 Home Guard were formed in 2005.

As many of our founder members had relatives who had been members of West Riding  Home Guard Battalions, we were delighted for the opportunity to remind people of the unselfish effort and commitment that our volunteer forces gave freely, to help protect families and homes from an imminent invasion force.

“C” Company, WR28 Home Guard, has grown in numbers & equipment over the past 8 years enabling us to tailor our WW2 displays to the local events that we attend.

Pontefract Home Guard Living History.

The Fighting 48th are a long established Home Guard.

Pontefract Home Guard Living History Group looks at the seriousness through the uncertainty and the improvisation, but never allow ourselves to trivialise, romanticise, fictionalise or glorify the war years on the Home Front.A second impression is of the secret work of the Auxiliary Units and we are proud to claim to be the first group to portray these men in our way and are honoured to have a close relationship with the A.U. museum in Suffolk.
