Well, I would be curious how you could tell this was time period to the 2nd World War and not a post WW2 timeframe?  That is the difficult thing with Allied equipment, especially items like this, it is practically impossible to date.  Unless, a design was present during the WW2 period that was changed afterwords to a new pattern to help specifically date this piece.  It is interesting.  I think your assumption of coverall is a better assumption.  Most fire suits I have seen always have a collar which could be secured in an upright position to protect the entire neck of the firefighter.  These are just my observations. 

The name you gave "Broud Arrow" does not show up in a several search engine search.  Broad Arrow was what was always attempted to try to reference.  No manufacturing/ clothing Haberdashery was found. 

 

 

Thanks for sharing,
