    Default Mk2 RP/T

    A not often seen RP/T, hedging my bets would be for repair party telephone.
    Could be for transport, but I think an telephone engineer would be needed to repair broken lines & exchanges after bombing.
    It has RP/T to front & back, all dated 1939 & made by BMB.

    Hi mate, that is a rare lid! Could this possibly be a Repair Party helmet for Trams? I know not many city's have them now (unfortunately) but I would have thought the GPO would have repaired the phone lines? Nice helmet either way. Leon.

    Another one of those not quite sure what the markings stand for, but nice anyway.
    Thanks.
