this helmet is another small addition to my collection, it is a Mk2 A.R.P. Warden in the classic black paint scheme, in good condition and all well marked.
shell: F4 BMB 1939
liner MK1 pattern: BMB I / 1939
size: 6-3 / 4
control mark: broad arrow + 508
All components appear to be original ones to me, I think it's also interesting that liner and shell are matched and both marked "BMB 1939", also the black paint is the one with which it was originally manufactured, evidently born as Home Front supply.
Inside it was painted a "6." number, which I does not know the meaning.
Another thing that I've noticed, is that the "W" letter, seems to have been originally painted with a smaller font and only from one side, subsequently covered with a larger font and simultaneously has been added on the opposite side, I wondering if it was subsequently issued a regulation that would specify this variation, or it is the result of his own initiative?
Thank you in advance for all your comments.
