News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

I assume you have had a look in Gulvin's book "Kent Home Guard"?

Apart from that, it might be worth asking in Dartford's museum

I'm sure I have seen a picture of an armoured car which was made for the Home Guard -this may have a connection with the engineering company J&E Halls which were in Dartford, although it doesn't seem to be mentioned in the official history of Halls.

As I was born and bred in Dartford, I would be interested to hear what you can find out? My Grandfather was in the ARP but none of my family were in the Home Guard unfortunately.
