Default A.S.1942 hand bell

Hi Chaps,
I attach two photos of a WW2 hand bell. It is about the same size as the more common ARP bells but this type is always marked A.S.1942 followed by a /|\
broad arrow. Does anyone know what the A.S. stands for. I can only think of Auxiliary Service?

Thanks Captain, I just wonder why the Ambulance Service would need hand bells?
