Rugby Home Guard

Where’s Captain Mainwaring? This wonderful picture could almost be a scene from Dad’s Army.

Rugby Home Guard

Rugby Home Guard

It shows members of Rugby’s Home Guard being taught judo in case of a German invasion in the Second World War. It’s another from Geoff Tye’s collection and he is fourth from the left in the light coloured round-neck jumper. Luckily their new-found skills were never needed. Does anyone recognise a relative in the class, or in the picture below, which is also Rugby Home Guard?
