Home Guard Questionnaire

This questionnaire was sent to the Zone Commander, Group Commanders and Battalion Commanders of the home guard in the North Highland Area. It states that "the attached questionnaire is forwarded in the hope that it might be useful for junior leaders to instruct their man. If a Home Guardsman is able to answer all the questions and can shoot, he would be considered trained." The questions are headed: "WHAT EVERY HOME GUARDSMAN SHOULD KNOW."

There are thirty two questions in total, some with multiple parts to answer. These range from ascertaining how to distinguish between enemy and friendly parachutists and asking how will they feed men who cannot get home for meals.

This document was sent from the Colonel, G.S.O.1. , 10 Ardross Terrace, Inverness.
