British WW11 helmet. Made just for Civilian Defense. This one is unique, firstly it has its rare original canvas shoulder carrier, secondly it is ID to the owner, she has written inside very clearly, and thirdly, the owner has added a little personal touch, the bow on the outside. I can only guess that she was a very good and thorough tax inspector, the way she has written so neatly, I bet there was nothing wrong with her books, and she also had a sense of humor, non regulation bow to the outside!!

    The bow adds so much personality! I'm sure this gal would have been wearing some kind of sun hat with an equivalent red bow if it weren't for the war.

    A Civilian protective helmet or more commonly known as the Zuckerman after the person who designed it. The majority of these were produced in 1941.
