Book Description

19 July 2010
Created in July 1940, the Home Guard was not entitled to use military ranks until February 1942, after which date all officers appeared in the Home Guards Lists, each covering a different Command. These Command Lists give details of relevant units proceeding down the chain of command. Officers, together with their Decorations (awarded for World War Two and before) are listed by unit and rank; some entries identify service in previous units. The volume has an alphabetical index. This is a good genealogical source of reference for family and local historians. It also allows military enthusiasts and collectors to identify Home Guard service and thence Defence Medal entitlement. The Western Command is the largest of the Commands, covered the western side of Great Britain from Herefordshire, through Wales and Cheshire to the industrial centres of Lancashire, then onwards to the Lakeland counties of Cumberland and Westmoreland. On its eastern borders it encompassed the Midland counties of Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire.
