A number of the armbands issued by Warwickshire's local authorities have been listed on this blog previously, but I have not seen this dark blue "ARP ROAD REPAIR SERVICE" before. It is listed amongst a number of Civil Defence badges including a red chevron. Of all the badges issued during the war some of the hardest to find and to be quite certain about are the early red chevrons issued to rescue and decontamination squad leaders.
The below armband, badges and insignia are currently on eBay and generating quite a bit of interest.
