Description

WW2 American M 1941 Tankers Helmet, Size 58. Sn 11530 - 11530

A WW2 American M1941 Tankers helmet, size 58. The official designation for this simple 'bump protection' helmet is often suffixed M1938 or M1941. In 1938 the Ordnance Board initiated trials to find a replacement for the infantry and cavalry pattern tank crew helmets then in use. In 1941 the Rawliongs company filed a patent for the design that was accepted by the board and issued to the US forces the same year. The helmet is made from resin impregnated fibre with leather fittings and lining cradle. Typical of tank helmets of the period it provided no ballistic protection but was adequate for bump protection inside the tank. The shell of the M1 helmet could be worn over the tankers helmet if additional protection was needed. (see page 115-116 in 'Tin Hats To Composite Helmets' book by Martin J. Brayley). The helmet is in very good condition. It is complete and has the size 58" (American Metric Size) stamped in black ink inside the rear leather padding. The out side is in very good undamaged condition with just a few marks as your would expect from normal use inside a tank. It has flexible side flaps which house the R-14 earphones and a canvas chin strap which secures with a press stud. The inside leather liner has a draw string adjustment. The price includes Uk delivery. Sn 11530
