As a birthday gift, my son found me a 1943 A.R.P. Blouse (Battledress)in very fine shape. It's a medium blue, with no apparent patching or badge up. See below:
I have tried a bit of research, but I come up short each time. I will be taking this along as part of my "Touch the History, from The Few through The Blitz".....I regularly travel once to twice a month to a High School here and keep the History kids captive with my Flight Helmet/oxy collection, much wit, wisdom, more kit, sweetheart jewelry and basic chivalrous tales from the Battle of Britain. (Very rewarding!)
Inside tag: Blouses A.R.P. 59a
Size No. 2
Ht 5'4" and under
Breast 35" - 37"
Waist 33" - 35"
Denham (1933) 1943
Does anyone know what this BD needs to have it "show" for the class? In other words, which ARP helmet, armband and/or proper markings would this BD have had?.....
If anyone can help, It would be greatly appreciated!
Many thanks to all!
