Although less well known, the Volunteer Force had a similar role in Britain during the First World War as the Home Guard had in WW2. This booklet provides a fascinating brief history of the Hemel Hempstead group of volunteers, by giving a short account of their formation, governance and actions, until they were disbanded at the end of the war.
