Description

129) A good original 1930s sun helmet. this is not a military issue item but one which would have been purchased by British army officers serving in the tropics. The shell is good. It shows some dirt, marks and dust some of which will brush off. It is good and strong but does have a few soft spots in places. The inside is good. The rim shows minor sun fading. the original sweatband is in place and of leatherette material. It is marked as a size 7. The original chinstrap is in place but has been broken in one place and crudely glued back together. This does not stand out and feels good and strong. the inside has a patent date of 7/9/33.
