6th March 1940

Mrs. Townsend sent to the Museum her husband’s uniform that he wore in the Volunteers in the last war. He was a captain, and my Father was a sergeant.

The Volunteer Training Corps, to which Eric's father belonged in the First World War, performed a similar role to the Home Guard in the Second World War.
