    I think that's something to do with the ARP, the white stripes are some sort of senior officer. like i said i think!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Hi Mike,
    Sorry I cant be of much help other than to say its got a manufacture date of 1941, however, the wording on the front, "2nd Off" to me says navy, possibly ARP/Observer Corps

    Best to wait for one of the more knowledgeable lads to chip in with more details, someone like TinLid will pick up on it sooner or later and be able to give you more help than me.

    Regards etc

    Being black & with the small W it could be some unofficial wardens marking or something completely different, but interesting all the same.
