This stencil is suitable for hand or spray painting. It was painted on the front of the British Tommy helmet, in white or black paint. It was worn by 'Fire Watchers'. These volunteers were recruited to operate in the vicinity of their own home and street and were formed into small teams of 3 to 5 persons and trained to tackle small fires caused by incendiary bombs or to extinguish the incendiary bomb itself using water supplied by a stirrup pump or the application of sand. These were commonly known as 'Fire Watchers'.
