The Swedish Home Guard was founded on May 29th, 1940, as World War II was heating up. Sweden managed to remain neutral, so the Home Guard never participated in battles. Today 20 000 people are still ready to join the ranks by the Command’s decree — and sometimes help out with rescue missions and police work.
