    Been browsing The Collector's Guild and came across this MKII Canadian helmet with H.C.G. on the front of it. According to the description they do not know what it means and I was wondering if anyone here knew.

    if of any help to you my grandfather was working at the CO OP during the war and he was also an Air Raid Warden. the " kworp " as he pronounced it was the Co-Operatve Wholesale Society . I remember playing with his tin hat as a kid. this was the same helmet as per your query except for the fact that it had C.W.S stencilled on it inside the white box.
