An original 1941 dated 'Steel Helmet, Civilian Pattern' often referred to as the 'Zuckerman' helmet.
This pattern of helmet was introduced as an alternative to the MKII Steel Helmet and was issued to those who didn't need helmets with ballistic protection such as members of the Street Fire Party and Supplementary Fire Party.
This particular example is very original and still retains its correct liner which is stamped with the manufacturer's name 'H Ltd', the 1941 date and the size, 7. The overall condition of the liner is very good and a string chin strap is present which appears to be original to the helmet.
The outer shell still retains the large amount of which is lighter in person than shown in the pictures. The picture of the helmet upside down is a better indicator as to the true colour. The underside of the shell is marked with the date of January 1941 as illustrated in picture 7.
Overall a very original helmet and an inexpensive addition to any WW2 collection.
