    WW1 British Wolseley Pattern Overseas Service/ Tropical Pith Helmet Solar Topee With Pagri Formation Patches ‘IV’ To The 4th Brigade (RGA) Sherwood Foresters Notts & Derby Regiment. Sn 11320 - 11320

    The Wolseley pattern Pith helmet is a distinctive British design developed and popularised in the late-19th/ early 20th century. With its swept-back brim it provided greater protection from the sun than the old Foreign Service helmet and its use was soon widespread among British Civil and Military personnel serving overseas. During the First World War, the Sherwood Foresters had 33 Battalions in service, of which 20 served overseas mainly on the Western Front, but also in Gallipoli, Italy and the Middle East. Over 140,000 men served in the Regiment which lost 11,400 killed. The Regiment won 57 battle honours and 2,000 decorations, including nine Victoria Crosses. This is an original Wolseley pattern pith helmet to the Sherwood Foresters. It has its original 7 fold khaki head band 'Pagri' & vented top mount. The right side of the helmet has its original 4th Brigade Regiment formation patches on either side marked ‘IV’ on a green cloth patch. It is complete with leather sweatband and leather chinstrap. All material and stitching of the helmet, sweatband and chinstrap are undamaged with just the service wear to be expected. The crown of the helmet has the correct brass vent. The inside of the helmet has a nice label ‘Waterproof Tropical Helmet’.. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 11320
