  1. Helmets of the Home Front Hi all..... I am one of the authors - I started this book about 30 years ago and intensified my activity 10 years ago - I’m a helmet and general militaria collector. I wrote this book because it was needed - I became frustrated seeing HF lids confined to one or two pages at best in other books and thought they warranted a book of their own......I certainly wanted a book when I started collecting. If I were to summarise, it’s about 70% about the markings applied, 20% about the various helmets including variants like the CPH and their production and 10% about attachments, carriers etc. Each broad section “Wardens”, “Police”, “Fire” etc. contains a very small bit about the history of that particular group but then quickly jumps into the rules/guidelines about the markings applied, and, where we found them, any known regional variations.....but the important bit is the markings and the photos of them. In over 40 years, on average, I come across a new (to me) marking every week ....last year the draft had 300 pages.....it’s actually finished with 362....I simply had to rule it off before it got too big. There are period B/W pics but copyright rules proved too difficult to include many that I would liked to include. It’s being sold by me directly retail £65 if there's any questions I'm happy to field them or PM me, and here’s the kicker....we’ve sold just under half the print run in the first week and I have no plans to re-print. 362 pages, hard cover, over 1,000 helmets, full colour, limited print-run etc ..it would grace any (strong) book shelf and make a great divider between books on M35s and US M1s! Feedback has been positive...the inevitable identification of “wrong-uns” included! Adrian Blake 2019
