Auxiliary Units: The Home Guard's Special Forces

Auxiliary Units were special units of the Home Guard. These units were to stay behind enemy lines in the event of a German invasion of the UK. They would provide intelligence and harass German rear areas.

Unlike the rest of the Home Guard, they were well armed and equipped. Each patrol had a Browning Automatic Rifle, as well as grenades, incendiary grenades, explosives, detonators, etc.
