|The Local Defence Volunteer Force (LDV) were formed to
provide a lookout and to act as a second line of defence in the event of
an invasion. Nicknamed "Look, Duck and Vanish", they were
later re-named the "Home Guard" by Churchill.
This picture of the Dover Home Guard was taken at Crabble Athletic Ground, at the beginning of WW2.
