About this item

A fantastic British leather National Service Fire Brigade Helmet , likely to be made by Jas Hendry Ltd of Glasgow. This helmet is in excellent condition for its age and is complete with liner and chin strap. It is a pre WW2 helmet, probably 1920’s or 30’s and was obviously put back into service during WW2. There would originally have been the brigade badge fixed to the helmet. The cockades/rosettes are of a diamond shape and appear to be made from Bakelite or some sort of plastic or resin. Stamped on the inside of the neck guard is an oval maker’s mark which is faint but I’m pretty sure it says Jas Hendry Ltd Glasgow. This helmet is a really interesting item and has obviously seen many years of service both pre war and during WW2.
