    VERY RARE, Early 1900s English Manchester Police Male Constable's/ Sergeant's 6 Panel Summer Issue ‘Straw’ Helmet By Christys To Officer ‘D229’ With Helmet Plate & Chin Strap. Sn 11977 - 11977

    Police helmets were first issued in London in the 1860’s. Each Police Force had their own preference for style of protective headgear, balancing protective qualities and comfort for the wearer. Later Police helmets concentrated on protection however some early helmets were made of lightweight materials such as woven straw or cork. During the early 1900s Manchester Police Officers were issued with a lightweight summer ‘straw’ helmet (see the book ‘Police’ by Archive Publications and plate 146 of the same book which shows an image of the Manchester ‘Straw’ helmet which is exactly the same as our example). Our example has a perfect exterior finish with 6 panel construction, vented ball top mount, patent leather brim and headband. The helmet is fitted with its original Manchester Police metal helmet plate. Inside it is in excellent condition with a leather sweat band and chinstrap with small buckle. The sweatband is impressed by the manufacturer ‘Christys 35 Gracechurch’ and has an ink printed number ‘D229’ no doubt the Manchester ‘D’ Division Designation and collar number of the Officer issued with the helmet. The interior of the helmet has the correct woven straw construction. It is approx. UK size 6. Price for this very rare Police helmet which is worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 11977
