Home Guard

The 8th Battalion of the Devon Home Guard (later with headquarters in Holsworthy) began at Bradworthy.

The first Local Defence Volunteers drilled in the School playground.

The main observation point was on Bradworthy Moor, and guards were maintained there nightly.

A couple of bombs were dropped on the parish of Bradworthy, at Atworthy and at Alfardisworthy, but neither caused any significant damage.
