British WW11 National Fire Service steel helmet. The Painting on th rim "western No2" denotes the area, this one possibly Scotland (Glasgow?) Scarce helmet in that it was produced without a steel rim around the sharp edge.

    For a time in 1941 BMB made these raw edge helmets, probably for quickness just to get the numbers out. A lot of them seem to have gone to the NFS, they also made helmets in that year with the normal rims.
    Western No2, Scotland, fire force No.2, Fire force HQ Paisley.
