The Home Guard (initially “Local Defence Volunteers” or LDV, or in slang, Look-Duck-Vanish, hence the name change) was a defence organisation of the British Army during the Second World War. Operational from 1940 until 1944, the Home Guard — comprising 1.5 million local volunteers otherwise ineligible for military service, usually owing to age, hence the nickname ’Dad’s Army’ — acted as a secondary defence force, in case of invasion by the forces of Nazi Germany and her allies. The Home Guard guarded the coastal areas of Britain and other important places such as airfields, factories and explosives stores.
