Contributor's father was in the Royal Observer Corp and Home Guard in Lymington, worked as a design engineer, reserve occupation. He was on the roof when they bombed Coventry. He didn't talk much about this experience. Signed up around 1939/40 and served for full duration of the war. As part of the Home Guard, they prepped in case they were invaded.
