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 and a good amount of the original grey paint finish is still present. Part of the lace which holds the liner in is missing and there is no chin strap which is reflected in the price. The shell is stamped with the 1941 date as illustrated in picture 5.

Overall a very original helmet and an inexpensive addition to any WW2 collection.
