Description
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

An excellent example of the steel helmet. These were almost completely unaltered from the WW2 design. This particular example is dated 1965. To the outer shell is a dark green-brown painted finish and to the side the drop zone patch of 7 Parachute Regiment Royal Horse Artillery. This was the airborne artillery element. To the liner is the soldier’s name, being a gunner, and a member of G Battery. G Battery was known as Mercer’s Battery. There is a G Battery stamp to the leather. The chinstrap is complete and of the webbing variety. The sorbo remains good and flexible but a little crisp in places. The top pad has been removed from the helmet. These helmets were in use until the early ‘80’s. They were extensively used on duties in Northern Ireland and often because of the longevity of their service they had multiple re-paints and are in poor condition. However this is a well above-average example of a classic paratrooper item. Code: 52453
