U.S. Army M1938/ M1941 Tankers Helmet By Wilson Athletic Goods Manufacturing Company, Size 7 ½ With Correct Original M1938 Tanker’s Resistal Goggles . Sn 17768 - 17768

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 (see page 130 of Government Issue Collector’s Guide by Enjames). 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. The helmet is in excellent, near un-used condition. The padded leather lining has a crisp ink roundel manufacturer stamp ‘Wilson Ath Goods Mfg Co & 7 ½ (size). It has flexible side flaps to house R-14 earphones. The helmet is mounted with its original M1938 Tanker’s Resistal Goggles. At the outbreak of WW2 Harry Buegeleisen Company registered this design of goggles (see page 131 of Enjame’s book). The goggles are clean and undamaged with red tinted lenses, alloy frames with soft leather support and webbing strap which fits correctly to the helmet. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 17768
