A visitor to this site sent me some very interesting photos from an auction that took place. The images below show a very bespoke early-war outfit belonging to an ARP Warden in the Kensington district of west London.
The jacket is the windcheater variety with standard badges to the breast (ARP and Kensington area marking). The sleeve has the markings of a Head Warden. The trousers feature a belt nit braces. The jumper, from Harrods also has the ARP badges attached. The beret, of stand standard Basque design, has a hand made badge attached. All-in-all a very interesting 'uniform'. The number 25 on the upper sleeves may refer to the warden's post number.
News about interesting insignia, ARP related info and period photos that turn up.
