This is a WW2 British RAF RESCUE helmet stencil. It allows you to hand paint the text 'RAF RESCUE' on the front of the Tommy Helmet. It is 50mm wide and 65mm tall. It is suitable for hand painting only as it requires a very small brush and a steady hand to hand paint in the 'tabs'.
The Marine Branch was a branch of the Royal Air Force (RAF) which operated watercraft in support of RAF operations. Just days after the creation of the RAF itself, the Marine Craft Section (MCS) was created with the transfer of Royal Navy Air Service (RNAS) vessels and personnel to the new service. Originally tasked with the support of RNAS, and later RAF, seaplanes, Marine Craft Section was to achieve its greatest size during the Second World War, and achieved fame for its role in air-sea rescue operations.
