It was decided by the War Office to enrol members of the Home-Guard - preferably former Artillerymen - into some of the Royal Artillery coastal batteries. In December 1941 a recruiting advertisement was published in the local press, resulting in the formation of a small Home-Guard unit attached to the RA in January 1942. Response to the advertisement was largely taken up by members of the Special Constabulary, who were - up to now - unable to participate in Home-Guard activities.
