  • L.S.F. Gazette 1940

    Here's a little something for anyone interested in Irelands Emergency era security forces. I'd heard of the L.D.F. before but not the L.S.F. (Local Security Force) until I came across this magazine.

      When the LDF was formed there were 2 groups - A & B. One became the LDF (equivalent of the Home Guard in the UK (and our now RDF)) and the other became the LSF (an armed garda reserve of sorts).

        Thanks for that Dev, I was just reading up on it online, I was a bit surprised by the number of men in it , 148,306 in August 1940.
