    Default Mk2 Wardens Messenger

    A very worn but interesting helmet, an W over an M to the front, & an M to the rear.
    Which makes me feel it's an messenger for the wardens service, or could be someone who was a warden as well as an messenger?
    The helmet is dated 1939 & made by BMB, the liner also 39 but made by TTC.

    In my local town there is a story of a warden/messenger with the w and m on front and back of his helmet and depending on which duty he was on would wear the helmet that way!!

    Thanks Leon, here's another double one, NFS & warden. I know there was a close connection with the NFS & wardens service.

    That too is a fine looking helmet, I can see that by all these variations I may be getting myself into a bigger hole than I expected! Leon.
