Royal Armouries
‘A blackbird’s cry of alarm means something to a good prowler and he will not rest till he has discovered its cause….It may be a stoat, or a fox, or a cat, but it may be a GERMAN’, ‘The Art of Prowling’. A facsimile from the Home Guard Training Series of pamphlets published by Gale & Polden c.1942, with an informative Afterword exploring the context of the work. Popular military author Colonel G.A. Wade’s advice was intended to supplement War Office publications with practical advice for members of the Home Guard and can be read now as an evocative insight into the fighting spirit of the era. The text, illustrated with line drawings, teaches the soldier to combine ‘furtiveness…with curiosity’ in learning to ‘prowl’: to sneak up on an enemy, avoid attracting attention and to take on German spies in all guises and wherever they may appear. Published in association with the Royal Armouries.
