Original WWII British MkI Dispatch Rider Helmet Marked BMB 1942 - Size 7
Original Item: Only One Available. A very condition original WWII British MK I Dispatch Rider helmet. Shell has original paint with one dent on the rear. Leather liner and chinstrap assembly are soft and supple, though unfortunately the liner did suffer significant moth damage. Liner is nicely maker marked BMB and dated 1942, and is marked with size 7 inside a shield. BMB is the marking for Briggs Motor Bodies Ltd., who also made Brodie and other helmets for the British war effort. The wool padding is still present, which is very rare, though it has also suffered moth damage.
The MkII paratrooper helmet shell was also used for dispatch riders during and after World War II. It was introduced in 1942 and features a front pad and leader neck flap that forms a double chinstrap.
This is a classic WWII British Dispatch Rider helmet that will make a great addition to any collection.
