St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery Lymington hold a wide range of local interest material. They have kindly allowed us to scan and upload these photos of the Home Guard units in the Forest.
Can you help us put names to faces at all?
Want more about the Home Guard?
An astonishing collection of documents relating to the Home Guard have come to light from the Crofton family. The collection of military orders, letters, defence plans and hand drawn maps were lovingly kept in a huge elegant scrap book by Major Crofton’s father, Lt Col Sir Morgan George Crofton Bt DSO. The collection also includes a number of ledgers.
