A Midlands Home Guard enthusiast has produced an article on the evolution of Home Guard training rifles. This shows examples from one extreme of the evolutionary process to the other, and much in between. I have posted images here showing the most rudimentary example and one of the most detailed.

This article and a large number of further illustrations can be seen here: http://www.staffshomeguard.co.uk/J19HGT ... Rifles.htm if any visitors to this page are interested in reading further.
