    Home Guard Humour

    I was looking through a little booklet titled "Home Guard Humour" which i assume to have belonged my grandfather because he served in the home guard during WW2. Apparently original copies like mine were first published in 1945, the year after the H.G. was stood down. There are many amusing cartoons in the booklet and some are very good, for example, on the rifle range the targets placed behind the H.G. because, the implication being, their shooting is so bad and unboxing a crate of what is labeled up as American rifles with the grease falling off in large drips.

    I did an eBay search and was surprised to find that the booklet has been republished.

    I thought that others here may be interested

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.
