I visited the Tyne and Wear Archives today and asked to see all things Home Guard related, of which I had searched the catalogue on the internet previously. The Archivist had to check some of the items first for personal/sensitive information. This item he would not let me see because it contained sensitive information about people that could still be alive. PA.NC/5/28 Item Exercise "Nightingale" 7 - 18 January 1944 [file cover is titled 'Home Guard etc Explosive Stores' and also contains one piece of correspondence on this subject 20 November 1942] 1942-1944 He did give me a clue as to its content. It contained information about security suspects, which made it all the more interesting. The reference to the Home Guard item I did see and it was an unconnected letter. Has anyone come across anything like this before, surely if its in an archive I should be able to see it, freedom of info etc.
