The Oxfordshire Home Guard Living History Group is dedicated to the memory of those men who, during World War Two, volunteered their services when the invasion of  Great Britain was a very real threat.

Aged between 17 and 65 years,  men volunteered in staggering numbers to defend our shores against the formidable might of the Nazi German Forces. 

How they would have coped we will never know but they were ready, initially with very little in the way of equipment and weapons.

The group's aim is to preserve and promote the memory of the Home Guard and the Home Front in general.    

Oxfordshire Home Guard is now an established group and has attended numerous shows throughout the region providing an educational experience for those interested in the Home Front during World War 2.

We are always keen to meet with prospective members,  men and women. We would also welcome anyone who would just like to come and talk to us about any aspect of the war, that they or their close relatives were involved with, thereby promoting the vital roles carried out on the 'Home Front' during this period of history.

We are a friendly group bound in a very real interest in this period of our history but we also share a sense of humour and and take the opportunity to have fun. 

We warmly invite people with an interest in any WWII subject to make contact. We don't ask you to make a huge commitment to the group as it is your interest in the subject that really matters and if you can share some of your knowledge with us, it helps to broaden our understanding too.    ​

We get together for meetings and training two or three times a month at venues around the Bicester area.
