RAF issue Wolseley Helmet
By Helmets Ltd. of Wheathampstead. Size 67/8. This is a true tropical issue 'Wolseley' helmet with its distinctive high domed top and duckbill neck. They differ from the 'Pith' helmet that has a flatter crown and edges that curl under all the way around. Lined inside with green felt, the crown lined with 'coolair aluminex' to help keep the head cool. In very good clean condition with a nice RAF coloured flash stitched on the puggaree. Minor damage to the aluminium foil inside. Strap hooks remain but strap absent. Labelled with manufacturer's details, war department broad arrow mark and 1940 date. A very nice example of this helmet and an excellent display piece. Stock code H21570.
