Extensive resource covering ARP Wardens, Fire Guard and the Civil Defence Service uniforms, badges and equipment used during the second world war.
Photographs and descriptions of the various uniforms, insignia, badges and personal equipment used by British ARP Wardens, Fire Guards and the later Civil Defence services during the second world war. Many items are covered 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 shown on this site. Please contact me about additions, corrections or amendments. I am happy to add photos of badges or items you may have. See contact page for more information.
