- Casualty Receiving Hospitals (for serious injuries);
- First Aid Posts (FAP - for lightly wounded;
- Mobile Units (MU - to assist at major incidents);
- Gas Cleansing Stations (to deal with injuries from chemical and poison weapons)
- Mortuaries (both existing and temporary).
- Helmet Restorers
- WW2 Civil Reenactors
- Living History
- Displays & Presentations
- Civil Defence Collectors
- Museums & Film
This marking and other variations, were used on British Tommy helmets by the City or Local Authority 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 50mm tall and 90mm wide.
Suitable for hand or spray painting, just cut slots all round the stencil, within 5mm of the text on stencil and mask of if spray painting.
