    A very nice helmet. I see lots of the standard grey ones but these 'chief' examples are quiet unusual I think, especially in such good condition.

    These white painted CPH's of the FG had 1,2,3 & I'm not sure maybe a 4 black band to donate rank.The Senior fire guard was responsible for organizing & training FG's & supervising the work, the head fire guard was responsible for a group of senior fire guards, in general a senior fire guard was in charge of 75 FG's. There was also a street captain but I could'nt tell you what the number of black bands go with which one.
