Hoping others on the forum can help me with something I saw in a book a couple of years ago, and I had wondered if there was any truth to it. The book was I think about what seemed to German commando raids on Britain & published only a few years ago. But the bit that intrigued me was a comment that a pow either saw some older prisoners in Home Guard uniform when he arrived at a German POW camp, or they arrived when he was there. The implication being that these men were captured during one of the german raids & taken back to occupied Europe as pows. I am aware that some of the Home Guard Auxileries, trained in explosives & evasion incase of the Invasion of Britain, were recruited by SOE etc to serve behind the lines in France later in the war.
