    Join the MKII Police owners club James, very nice. At a guess, the 3 digit number is the PC number.

    If collections were judged on weight,I should think your collection James would achieve Iconic status,my mind boggles how your still managing to find room in your swiss chalet...........

    Hi James, well done on a nice helmet. My police lid has just turned up and it has a four digit number written on the strap, so I guess that may have been a common practice to distinguish the helmets apart once back at the station. Leon.
