On parade: the Home Guard returns to Blewbury!

October 19, 2023

Eight local uniformed Home Guard enthusiasts, complete with full kit and dummy rifles, were recently spotted patrolling in and around St Michael’s church.

Some of them apparently had a history of relatives (the Lalleys) who were in the Blewbury Home Guard, and they came to remember the volunteers who were positioned on the tower roof to watch for enemy aircraft or fires during the war. If anyone has any photo-graphs, documents, or memorabilia from the Blewbury Home Guard then they would be delighted to hear from you.
