Hi all, new to these forums... Was pointed in this direction from another forum in relation to this helmet in the links.
I got it from a relative that had no idea where it came from.
From what i've found out so far, its a WWII Air Raid Precaution (ARP)Warden helmet.
And from that i'm guessing, it would have been British & issued to the Irish during WWII, prob 1940'ish?
I read somewhere that a white bar underneeth the 'W' means it's a senior wardens helmet. Mine has a green bar, any idea what that means?
lastly, what sort of price would this go for? The owner said i could either keep it or sell it on & split whatever its worth.
If i keep it, it'll only go on a wall or sit under the bed. I'd like to see it go to someone who would use it or just in general appreciate it.
Im thinking €30-40 maybe? Going by past ebay auctions. But i dont know.
Any help appreciated lads, would love to know anything else about it.
If anyones interested in it too, just let me know!
