  1. Here's photo's of the AFS and NFS cap badges and helmets used by both services. The Auxiliary Fire Service was formed in 1938 and was organised by town or city they wore a cloth badge on their breast pocket which also had the name of the town or city under the letters AFS, the metal cap badge had no ( Kings Crown ). In August 1941 the AFS amalgamated with regional forces to form the National Fire Service. The new NFS was organised by numbered Fire Forces within the Civil Defence Regions, a circular cloth badge with number was worn on the breast pocket. The metal cap badge worn did have a Kings Crown and was in use from 1941 to 1948. Here is a photo taken in 1939 of Granny Chilvers on her bike wearing her AFS cap and coat she died in 1942 but it shows her cap badge had no Kings Crown. The only AFS badges with the Kings Crown on are button hole versions worn on the lapel.
