This Air Raid Warden's first aid kit used in Birmingham in the second world war.
During the second world war there was an organized system of civil defence run by volunteers, many of whom had already served as fighting men twenty years earlier during the first world war. They made sure the blackout was maintained, provided reassurance to people and administered first aid following an air attack.
