Endurance[edit]

As far as I can recollect, Home Guard personell are expected to, along with their combat baggage, pack food for three days. Thus the expected endurance of a home guard soldier would be three days, until re-supply is needed (in regards to nutrition, don't know about ammo). I am trying to find a citable source of this fact. --217.209.220.222 18:51, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

The Name[edit]

According to hemvarnet.se the official english name for hemvärnet is The Swedish National Home Guard. Should the word 'National' be added to the title? It would make sense since it connects to the name Nationella Skydsstyrkorna. 130.237.216.122 (talk) 07:03, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Comparison with American State Defence Forces[edit]

Why compare the Swedish Home Guards to the American State Defence Forces. The latter are almost unknown, even in America.JohnC (talk) 07:03, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

I also dont understand why the comparison is there? The Swedish National Home Guard is so much different it shouldnt be compared it should just be explained what it is. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.247.227.250 (talk) 11:28, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
I'm removing the comparison, since the article is neither a comparison between the two nor is it an accurate comparison. Xertoz (talk) 20:44, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
