Air raid precaution:eek:,something that size wouldnt have stopped a bomb on the nut:biggrin:

Seriously though i bet he was proud as punch wearing that.
 
Hi Abbie,chances are he was fairly old during WW2(yes the cap badge is from then)....the ARP were made up from men and woman usually to old to serve in the frontline of war.....there jobs were still dangerous and if he served in the Boar war,WW1 then he would have wanted to contibute in WW2...and if this was his badge on his head then he did:)

Thanks Dave. I managed to access the website and found some interesting info about Hull during WWII as well. He was getting on during WWII and it would not have been an easy job given the amount of air raids Hull had. I am feeling very proud of my Robert Webster :)
