WW2 British Paratrooper Helmet with Net and Scrim - 56/57cm

The early British Paratrooper Helmets were first introduced in 1942, firstly with the P Type Helmet and then the 'helmet, steel, airborne troops', HSAT.

In October 1942 the HSAT MkI was introduced to replace the first HSAT, with the most noticeable difference being the replacement of a rubber rim with a spot welded steel rim.

Our reproduction helmet features the familiar steel shell with a fine texturing effect, adding to the authentic look and feel of the helmet. The rim of the helmet is also made from one piece of steel, as per the originals. The helmet has also had a camouflage net added with additional jute strips. 

This Paratrooper helmet comes with a quality liner made from a thick leather. The inside of the liner is stamped with the size within a shield, flanked by a 1942 date. This date was chosen to suit the mid war use of the helmet. The BMB at the top of the stamp denotes

To keep the helmet secure, there is a chin strap as part of the leather liner.

These helmets were designed to be worn when jumping out of a plane, and so had a tight fit to make sure they don't come off. If your paratrooper helmet doesn't sit neatly when you put it straight on, you can adjust it by unscrewing the liner and putting the screw back through a different hole like you would a belt.

This helmet is available in the size 56/57cm.
