1974: A Cardiff City Fan In A Metal Helmet Prepares For A Manchester United Attack

Share this:

Soccer - Football League Division Two - Cardiff City v Manchester United - Ninian Park


EVERY so often we come across a photograph that makes us stop and wonder.

It’s August 31 1974. Cardiff City are hosting Manchester United in the Second Division.

The original caption tells us:

A Cardiff City fan, ready for a possible onslaught of missiles from the notorious travelling Manchester United support

Was he over-reacting? Maybe not

PS – Anyone know what hat he’s wearing?

Ref #: PA.4344226.

  • Rc Teets

    He is wearing an Air Raid Warden’s helmet from WW II. Their uniform consisted of overalls, an armlet and a steel helmet with ARP or A written across the helmet. ARP stood for Air Raid Precautions.

    • Anoraks

      Does that helmet make him more of a target?

  • My name is Rosie Smith. To cut a long story short I tried about 3 different spell casters over a period of 3 months and all they wanted was more & more money and kept coming up with excuses as to why the spell wasn’t working. Just when I was about to give up I came across several good testimonies of Dr. Oyinbo over the internet. I contacted him and he promised to restore my faith back into spell casters, that they are real and love spells do actually work. I was very sceptical after several scam spell casters. Mine wasn’t a simple spell but Dr. Oyinbo went above & beyond his way to look for extra money when extra work was required. Always called & txt on time. Replied to emails on time. Only asked for half the spell money as initial payment. My partner had walked out on me one day with no explanation …. I was devastated. When I was about to give up hope, Dr. Oyinbo words guided and encouraged me, and then he was back 3 days after the spell was cast. I recommend Dr. Oyinbo extremely highly. Dr.oyinbo you are a gifted man and I will not stop recommending him because he is a wonderful man. If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster, Try him anytime, he is the answer to your problems. You can contact him on ( or or call him +2348074066640. He is the best caster that can help you with your problems. He restored my faith and I AM FINALLY HAPPY.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
