WW2 British Casualty Service Helmet Stencil - Type #2
Warning! This is a very difficult stencil to use, if you have not had experience applying helmet stencils.
Casualty Services (CS) were organised by a city's or local authority's Chief Medical Officer of Health. Under the CS were all the various medical services such as:
- 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 63mm tall and 192mm wide.
Warning! This is a very difficult stencil to use, if you have not had experience applying helmet stencils. Suitable for hand painting only. You need to only apply the stencil centrally, not fully. Then slowly bend and paint in each of the words in 'SERVICE' start with the 'V' and bend and paint each letter. Then do similar with the 'CASUALTY' text.
