World War II Civil Defense Helmet

This civil defense helmet that recently came into the collection is an interesting piece.

It belonged to Edward Judkins who lived at 3 Buffum St. during WWII. As it turns out from 1944 onwards he became the sealer of weights and measures for the city if Salem. Which probably explains why he would be part of the civil defense for Salem, working for the city and all.
