A message from the past

Posted by Richard Monday, November 01, 2010

A Daily Mirror leader, dated 8 August 1940, under the heading "Don't tie them up", declares:

SUPPOSE we stop talking about ties for the Home Guard. Give them bombs, guns, rifles and clothes for rough wear. Spare the poor fellows the humiliation of being treated as public school boys. Some of them are quite well-educated.
What a lovely little barb.
