Royal Home Guard

The Kingdom of Unixploria is too small a nation to have a proper army. We do, however, have the Royal Home Guard. The Royal Home Guard consists mainly of local rapid response unit organized in battalions, with associated auxiliary defence organizations. The majority of the soldiers maintain a civilian job while serving the army part-time.

 

The Royal Home Guard are part of the Unixplorian Armed Forces' mission-based organization. The Royal Home Guard constitutes the basis for the protection of Unixploria. It has the task of operating over the entire conflict scale, from societal support during great strains in peacetime to armed combat in times of war.

 

The personnel is made up of locally recruited volunteers and consists largely of experienced soldiers and officers with a background in mission-based units.

 

When the Armed Forces are called in to help with forest fires, flooding or missing person searches, it often falls to Royal Home Guard units to support law enforcement and Rescue Services. Territorial surveillance, base security, escort duties, transport protection, target identification and artillery spotting are other typical Royal Home Guard duties.

 

In addition to personnel who have completed their national service or Basic Military Training, the Home Guard includes a large proportion of specialists, for example, paramedics, automotive orderlies and dog handlers, that are recruited and trained by voluntary defense organizations.

National Fire Ban

The previous fire ban applied to disposable barbecues and lighting fires in the wild, is now extended to include private gardens. The Royal Home Guard also advice all Unixplorian citizens to stay out of direct sunlight, and to drink plenty of water during the day.
