Home Guard armband

Members of the Home Guard were given armbands such as this one to make themselves more easily identifiable. Made from strong canvas material, it could be worn over civilian clothes if necessary. This replaced an earlier version with the initials LDV for ‘Local Defence Volunteers’, the original designation.
