West Sussex Home Guard 2 1941

18 mins United Kingdom

A training film for the West Sussex Home Guard showing the wrong and the right way to handle the enemy starting with shifty types attacking Home Guard men. The tables are then turned and the Nazis are arrested. Then a car pulls up at a roadblock only to race away with spies shooting dead the Home Guard. This is corrected in the following scene. Then a German parachutist overcomes his captors but, in the correct scene, the Home Guard pull his pants down - thus immobilising him.
