The Daresian Militia, formerly referred to as the Home Guard, initially consisted of conscripts only liable for service within Daresia and the Principality of Merue. However, following rising tensions in China, and the start of World War II, volunteers of the militia forces were deployed overseas to act as reserves and guards of military fortifications. These locations consisted of locations such as the Philippines, Dutch East Indies, Malaya and Australia.
