Plans call for this artifact to be displayed near the B-17F Memphis Belle™ as part of the new strategic bombardment exhibit in the WWII Gallery, which opens to the public on May 17, 2018.

German Air Raid Warning Service civilians, who notified the population of imminent bomber attacks, wore these helmets.
