British Airborne Helmet Mk1 – BMB 1943

WW2 British ‘Airborne’ paratrooper helmet Mk1. The production of the HSAT (Helmet Steel Airborne Troops) Mk 1 started in 1943, the significant difference between the early fibre rim HSAT and the Mk1 was the elimitation of the fibre rim this leaving a raw edge and subsequently a stainless steel edge binding was implemented to overcome the problem. The same form shell was also used by Dispatch Rider and Armoured Corps shells however the fixtures and methods of lining differed greatly. This helmet is in good condition, normal traces of wear, nice rough structure paint. The helmet is made by BMB and is dated 1943 with size 7 1/8. The leather cinstrap is complete in appears in good used condition, sorbo is dry. Shadow of a former camouflage helmet netting is still clearly visible!

Nice and very hard to find helmet.
