Home Guard Armour

I came across this photo on flickr while looking for Home Guard improvised armoured cars. The photo was taken by John Phillopson and is amongst a group of what I assume are a Home Guard re-enactment society.

This vehicle is based on a Triumph Standard 10 and has mock armour on the radiator and windscreen. The weapon is a Boys anti-tank rifle: just the job for taking on a Panzer Mk IV.

As far as I know this is not based on a real HG car but you never know.

In any case, it is a rich source of inspiration.


  1. Great to have a model of this on the table though:).
