do you think it time for another form of Home Service Force ?
add your thoughts, you never know the Powers above may be reading this and possibly act on it.

don't wish to become cynical but would that not give HMG the more of a cause to deploy the TA in non-home defence style operations ?

Good god no! Its bad enough we've got community support officers & camden/southwark etc wardens ,holborn rangers etc....
The last thing we need is a HG, it would be brimming with walts who would think they were in the 'army', rant over. :twisted:

i'm sure glorious leader will 'volunteer' HM forces for another conflict, i think he's behind his schedule, needs votes therefore popular war = election victory

Will never happen - it would require the govt to trust people with ... wait for it ... rifles! You know those things you can't be trusted to use unless you're in the police or army, when magically you stop being a potential homicidal maniac.

Although it might be nice come pub kicking out time to have some guys in helmets & DPM with some vintage firepower forming a line & fixing bayonets to disperse the chavs :lol:

"Even as it stands, the Home Guard could only exist in a country where men feel themselves free. The totalitarian states can do great things, but there is one thing they cannot do: they cannot give the factory-worker a rifle and tell him to take it home and keep it in his bedroom. THAT RIFLE HANGING ON THE WALL OF THE WORKING-CLASS FLAT OR LABOURER'S COTTAGE, IS THE SYMBOL OF DEMOCRACY. IT IS OUR JOB TO SEE THAT IT STAYS THERE."

ChickenHeart got it right with two types of HG. Heaven forbid, but in the event that the government attempts to maintain "cool Britannia", we could be forced to have HG battalions full of chavs anyway. Then it would be the Herbert Guard instead.

Anyway, what would we expect a newly resurrected HG (Herbert or Home) to actually do (given that there is no German army lurking on the other side of the channel at the moment, etc)? :?

Who were the Old and Bold warriors in the 80's HSF? They were a great bunch I do think it was a mistake disbanding them as they had so much knowledge to pass on. IIRC they all had wings or daggers and scared the S**T out of a young Whitehorse. Turned out although they were Private they all seemed to be ex CSM's, RSM's etc.
