Extensive resource covering the uniforms, badges, helmets and equipment used by Air Raid Wardens, Fire Guards and the Civil Defence Services during WW2.
Uniforms, insignia, badges, helmet markings and personal equipment used by British Air Raid Precautions (ARP) Wardens, Fire Guards/Fire Watchers and the Civil DefenceServices during the second world war. Lots of photographs with a daily updated blog. It is a work in progress and is updated as new material comes to light.
I'm always keen to hear from WW2 re-enactors, collectors and historians regarding the information displayed on this site. Please contact me about additions, corrections or amendments. I am happy to add photos of badges, period photos, re-enactors photos and original WW2 items you may have. Use the contact page to drop me a line.
Not covered here are the WW2 fire services (AFS/NFS) or Police services. Nor is the training, organisation and structure of the Air Raid Wardens' Service, Fire Guard and Civil Defence Services during the war.
