Original WWII British MkI Dispatch Rider Helmet Marked BMB 1945 - Size 7

Regular price $275.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very good condition original WWII British MK I Dispatch Rider helmet. Shell has original paint with no major dents or dings that we can see, just a bit of scuffing due to years of storage. Leather liner and chinstrap assembly are soft and supple, though here is a bit of cracking on the leather chin strap.

The leather liner is nicely maker marked BMB and dated 1945, 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 felt padding is still present, which is very rare, as it degrades easily and often suffers 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 great example of the classic WWII British Dispatch Rider helmet that will make a great addition to any collection.
