Currently up for auction on saleroom.com are these figures of an ARP Gas Detection Squad. Produced in the late 1930s it is one of a series of ARP studies sold by William Britain. The box is a replica.
Something a little bit different here. These four boxed sets recently appeared on an online auction house. I've seen various individual figures appear on eBay and reach quite a lot of money. These look to be in A1 condition. I'm not entirely sure of the date of manufacture. Interesting items.
UPDATE: I'm told these were made by Taylor & Bryant and were produced pre-war around 1938.
Even though the threat of enemy bombing was ever present, there was always those that thought about how it could be turned for a profit. This is a card game devised using many of the features found during the blackout.
This game is a variation of "Shut The Box". A number of board games were manufactured and given wartime updates.
