    Here's the little display at the foot of the stairs to my man-bunker.
    A fallout shelter sign, Civil Defense gas mask, the hand painted Air Raid Warden helmet, and my dad's old transistor radio with CD channels.

    These are in the rafters. A Geiger Counter and a charger for the radiation pens.

    A Sk IV Sanitation Kit. These held toilet supplies and sanitary needs. The drum was to be used as a commode.

    I've always thought Geigers were neat... are they fairly easy pieces to obtain?

    I see them fairly regularly. They usually run around $25-$35 here. This one works, but is out of calibration. I think I got both those together for $25. They are pretty fun. I play with mine around the old radium face instruments I have and watch the needle jump. LOL

    WW2 era Civil Defense helmet made from shell of a WW1 helmet with new liner made of rubber covered foam. This one is from an Auxiliary Police department in Connecticut. Insignia is made from an arm band that was cut up and the logos glue to the helmet.
