Hello, please can someone help me, my partner is a millitary collector currently working on a home guard uniform so I need the name of the badges and where to get them, thank you :)

p.s. pretty sure he already has the shoulder ones that say home guard.

Generally the Home Guard wore the cap badge of their local county infantry Regiment. For a more indepth look at HG insignia I would suggest you try to get hold of a copy of John Mills and Terry Carney's book, 'In the space of a single day'. The insignia and Uniforms of the LDV and Home Guard 1940-1944 and 1952-1956.

It is more to be a gift for him, (as she did send me a PM) so think she also searches for ways to acquire them without her husband's knowledge.
