Cardiff City Fire Helmet.

Recently found in the local area is this nice WW2 Cardiff City Fire helmet. It appears to have been an army issue going by the olive drab factory finish to the inside, The outside has recived a brushed coat of pale blue then a hand rendered white ''Fire'' to the front and back, pencil marks can still be found around the lettering. To finish this off is a Cardiff civil defence decal. No markings can be found to the helmet due to the overpaint and the liner has no makers mark, the size being written in pencil to one arm. Chinstrap is missing one end buckle.
