The Home Guard in N Ireland

Recommended Posts

I would be greatfull for any information available on the history of the Home Guard in N Ireland during WW2.
Im after the designations and locations of all units and dates of their existance.The names of Commanding and other Officers and personalities....in fact anything known about the HG in NI.
In particular........ detailed info such as nominal rolls of manpower etc in the Cookstown and Dungannon areas would be great.
