When war broke out in September 1939, some men volunteered to join the armed services of Britain; however, Britain could only raise 875,000 men, so many more were needed.
In 1940, two million British men aged between 19-27, who were not working in 'reserved occupations', were ordered to fight. This was known as being 'called up'. They were then trained and sent off to war. Men who were too old, too young, or not completely fit, were instructed to join the Home Guard.
