A good bonus there James, and a cracking lid. I also saw a senior officer version of one of these recently but did not buy it, though the price seemed OK.
Whatever its just an opinion.
it sure was jerry the first issue label in my whole collection so you can imagine my excitement when i spotted itin 2015 i should definately go to specsavers
Nice label, not much down Albion Rd apart from houses, but one church & what looks like a church hall. That might have been the ARP offices.
thats interesting to hear Aaron ,i take it your familiar with this area
Nice label James, adds that bit "extra" to the helmets story. Leon.

thanks leon ,there are a few members here from kent so im hoping to learn more about the location of the offices there is referance to st james's hall on albion road ,ill have to dig deeper
As I'm only a stones throw away from that address!!!! I'll add my 2 cents worth!!! opposite the old church (now developed into flats by the way)...is the site for the Royal Navy's "T.S. Brilliant" which I would imagine would be an ideal candidate for wartime use as ARP offices!!!
