Identification wristlet. An identity bracelet which would be engraved with personal details so that the wearer could be identified if they were injured or killed in an air raid. It also features a St Christopher medallion. This commercial item is mounted on its original sales card; the references to ARP (Air Raid Precautions) and civil defence attempt to imply official approval.


1939 AD - 1945 AD
