    Default ww2 british steel helmet markings


    Hi! all.
    I picked this up at a car boot sale for 5.00 and was wondering what the markings are? I think it could be a leading firemans helmet,
    I can not see any date markings inside the helmet at all bu I have not taken the lining out yet?
    if anyone can help me I would be most greatefull.
    I should have thought the 22 is an area mark but dont know what the J.W.G is?
    thanks for looking!

    Sorry I cannot help on your questions. But don't remove the liner.

    Bargain buy!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi,
    I can see where you are coming from with the leading fireman, because of the red band, but I don't think so. Whatever it is it looks a great helmet, a bargain.

    Could it possibly be a firewatch helmet for a factory?
    There might be a date in the liner on one of the cross pieces..also might be stamped on the rim near to the chinstrap lugs.

    Good find!!

    A large number of companies had their own fire watchers or ARP and they usually had the company initials or logo on their helmets. A bargain at 5 I am really jealous.
