Who We Are!

The Home Defence Force (Volunteers) are an ex-servicemens organisation working to form a reserve dedicated to the defence of the United Kingdom. We are organised along military lines, hold an annual muster, train to maintain our skills and recruit in the spirit of the original yeomanry using the many people out there who feel that they still have a role to play in the defence of this country despite age or infirmity.

Supporters of the military in all forms including ex-military vehicle owners are welcome!

Who Are We Recruiting?

We aren't recruiting who you think you are - the old man, the damaged body or the fractured mind.We are recruiting that spark within you; the spark that caused you to join the armed forces; the spark that makes you stand in the rain every Remembrance Day remembering comrades and others; the spark that makes you work for hours in all weathers restoring old military equipment to its former glory and finally the spark in your soul - loyal to your comrades, the queen and your country.
