He meant England proper, over the pond. 😊 also note date on bottom of the advertisement, a great clue . Many air raids in the UK during WW2, perhaps the inspiration for protecting the states the same way.
Harry was an Italian immigrant who came to New York City. Later retired to Phnx where he went back into production for a short while. He also made the sirens himself, foundry, no production lines or big industrial company.

Wait so did he take inspiration from England or where there actually HORs in England?

Just speculation but don't think he ever produced or sold overseas. His sirens were a lower cost than other systems so I imagine he would not have shipped overseas. Just my opinion, would like to know myself.
