Details of the uniforms, insignia, badges and personal equipment used by British ARP Wardens and Civil Defence personnel during the second world war.
This website covers the various uniforms, insignia, badges and personal equipment used by British ARP Wardens and the later Civil Defence services during the second world war. It includes many items but no site could claim to cover everything. It is a work in progress and is updated as new material comes to light. Not covered here is the training, organisation and structure of the various ARP and Civil Defence services.
I'm always keen to hear from collectors and historians regarding the information on this site. Please contact me about additions, corrections or amendments. I am happy to add photos of items you may have. See contact page for more information.
