Lancaster Home Guard (LHG) is a volunteered-based military group that works to keep County Palatine of Lancaster safe. The LHG was founded in December 1455.
The commanding Officer (Duchess/Duke), is head of the army, with the sitting County Council exercising overall authority with majority vote. The current Captain of the Guard is Vana_runedottir.
The LHG supports the mayors in defending their towns, escorts travellers, and carries out regular road patrols. Locally, members are expected to guard strategic buildings in their home towns: although despite this vigilance, one Liverpool tavern did get stolen.
