Strange Civil Defense Helmet Insignia

Recommended Posts

Is anyone familiar with this medical-esc helmet insignia on this green painted civil defense helmet? Is it ww2 era? Thank you for your help. I apologize that I had to import one picture without using the proper forum tool. I received an error every time I used the paperclip.

Green is "Safety" , you see it on stickers and other such items aroound manufacturing. Never seen anything like this. Definitely post war. 1950's - 1960's?

Hello,

That is not a standard WW II era CD helmet. It is probably from a factory or heavy industry.

The "Green cross" was used for the national safety council in WWII (and maybe earlier) for factory and work place safety. but I agree that helmet insignia is post WWII.

I agree with the above comment. This strikes me as an industrial item as opposed to Civil Defense.

Thank you guys! I saw this at a friends house and it struck me as odd to say the least. I’m surprised the man could be found on newspapers. I suppose that about settles it eh? Everybody have a good day and stay safe during these times.

You're welcome Preston. I'm kind of curious about the location of the helmet in light of the newspaper article. Is/was the helmet anywhere near Nevada, Ohio? Hope you and yours stays safe as well. Take care...--Matt

Surprisingly it’s in Arizona, specifically near Glendale. The guy who wanted to get rid of it said he got it from a vets son, but don’t they all say that? He thought it was some sort of combat medic helmet and I couldn’t help but laugh a bit behind closed doors. Stay safe Mr. Aznation!

Thanks Preston,

 

I found this just now. I think Glen's son Joe may be the obvious Arizona connection.
