Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The Traditional Bobby helmet was named after the creator of the British Police Force, SIR ROBERT PEEL, who became Prime Minister under Queen Victoria. This version, known as a "Comb Top", replaced the earlier "ball top" and "rose top" helmets used in many areas. The pattern features a pronounced ridge on the top of the helmet, which is capped off by a silvered fitting some simple designs.

The front Helmet plate has a "Queens's Crown" to top, over a star burst, with NORFOLK / CONSTABULARY in a circle. In the center of the plate is the Norfolk City coat of arms. The "Queen's Crown" indicates issue sometime after 1952, when Queen Elizabeth II assumed the throne.

This helmet comes with an early pattern oil cloth liner, with no size marking, which is lightly worn. The interior is green faux leather, used typically during the 50s-70s for these helmets. The helmet does not have a chin strap, and has a plastic surround, instead of the usual metal. There is some light wear and dirt, but no mothing we can see.

A very good example of a mid 20th century bobby helmet. Ready to display!
