Pecket Well gas mask

Whilst clearing out some old stuff I've found a 2nd World War adult's gas mask box, contained in a green canvas carrying bag (the respirator is no longer in the box). The bag has "I Harwood, 32 Keighley Road, Pecket Well, Hebden Bridge" handwritten on it.

It would be good to return it to either a local Harwood, or to the address.

I'm in Dorset, and my next trip to Hebden will be at least a two or three months away. In the meantime, if anyone knows any Harwoods, or the current residents of that address - please let them know I've found their gas mask box and bag!

The I. Harewood of 32, Keighley Road, Pecket Well (owner of the gas mask) would be related to Councillor John Harewood who lives (lived) in heptonstall. I think he may have died last year. My daughter and her husband now live at that address.
