WW2 British GPO Rescue Helmet Stencil
Despite the war challenges, the Post Office aimed to deliver all mail delayed by enemy action within 2 days. To help in this mission, Frederick G. Gurr established the GPO Rescue and Salvage Squad to rescue mail, money and supplies from Post Offices and letterboxes bombed in the City of London.

This marking and other variations, were used on British Tommy helmets by the GPO in WWII. The stencil is made from very high quality acrylic vinyl with tacky backing, which in layman's terms means its re-usable.
It measures 39mm tall and 114mm wide.
Suitable for hand or spray painting but the 'tabs' on the 'GPO', will need to be hand painted after stencil has been removed if required (many retained the tabs).
