That's a nice one. I don't do Home Guard helmets but I've seen a lot...but never this badge. Thank you for sharing.

'any more coming?

Thanks for the image of such a helmet in wear - I'd not seen one before.

Thanks - I checked through (online "research") RF HG battalions a couple of years ago trying to determine which would have worn the transfer, some or all but made no progress. I would imagine that these helmets appear in quite a few photographs of the time.
The seller had it listed as a WWI Grenadier Guards helmet as I recall, I advised her it was WWII RF HG and was pleased to win it.
