From Dusk Till Dawn Summary

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Sedgebury Wallop Home Guard Platoon Prepare for War by A. G. Street

In this book A.G.Street has put on record the story of the Home Guard from its birth in 1940, through its teething troubles and adolescence, to the mature and efficient force that it quickly became. As a farmer and an enthusiastic country Home Guard, he tells the story of the Sedgbury Wallop Platoon in the Wessex district. It was men such as Walter Pocock, "Shep" Yates, Tom Butler and Sir Robert Enfield, who first made the Home Guard into cohesive defence units. The force itself was an example of British improvization, and every one of those early volunteers - officers and men - improvized in a thousand ways to give his unit the highest possible efficiency in the shortest possible time, for in 1940 an invasion was genreally expected. A.G.Street also wrote "Farmer's Glory", "Strawberry Roan", "Hedge Trimmings", "Country Days" and "Ditchampton Farm".
