Siren suits were a popular item of clothing during World War 2. They were the original jumpsuits. The suit is like a boiler suit and was a favourite to wear, especially at night during air raids. With its quick zippered front, people could wear the suit over pyjamas, making it ideal for a quick dash to the air raid shelter. Many found it ideal for children.
