Relations involved in Emergency Grouping

Dear All,

I am hoping someone can explain this to me. I am looking into the history of a local family run business, Hopsons. I have read an article, note this is UK, about a meeting in my local area to form a group using the lorries of Hopsons. I am not sure yet if Hopson drove the vehicle(s) or if it was an employee, the latter I suspect. Anyway the article noted the groups were being formed as part of the Ministry of Transport Emergency Grouping Instructions. I was wondering if anyone could tell me, or point me to, information about this? It is obviously a preaction in the event that war broke out (article was March 1939), but would like to know more about it.
