An interesting selection of Civil Defence-related helmets is coming up for sale at an suction in Norfolk soon. Amongst the batch is this interesting and rare plain black "A.R.P. CONTROL" helmet. The vast majority of report and control room staff were in the senior supervisory roles and thus we see a lot of white helmets with two black bands. This example may be for one of the telephonists at the report centre.
