    Hi all,i wonder if anyone can help me with a 1941 Home Front Australian MkII helmet i just picked up.
    It has the letters N.B.S.on the front with the number 20.Does anyone have any idea what these letters might be short for :huh:
    Im thinking,
    National Bomb Squad or National Blood Service,
    Any ideas
    Thanks Mick

    All I can find (at present) is that a SH Witt set up a National Broadcasting Service, also a request from New Zealand that members of the NBS accompany units overseas, I wonder therefore if these are not journalists.

    Hmmmm Interesting,if it is a National Broadcasting Service lid,i wonder what the number represents.I know that British Fire Services helmets had numbers that represented Districts,more research needed by the looks of it :rolleyes:
    Thanks a lot, Wills :D
    Cheers Mate
