WW2 Home Front 'Trench Art' helmet humour

Article about: Thought I'd post this one for you all to have a look at! There is no liner and the inside is coated in soot so I guess it was used to cover a candle or something similar.

    Thanks for the replies - I bought it in Bristol some years ago so if it came from Cambuslang (I had to Google it to find out it was in deepest darkest Scotland) its travelled a long way!

    Hi,
    I wonder if your helmet was attached to the 12th anti- aircraft div'. They were up in Scotland during WW2.
