    Hello! I have recently purchased this helmet to join my collection of ww1 and ww2 helmets.
    I know its a dispatch riders helmet and its liner is dated 1949.
    Does anyone know anything about the decal on the front?

    I would say it was pretty rare, there can't be that many of them still around with a decal like that. The only thing that goes against it for me is it's a post war one, but apart from that it looks great.

    It's a nice lid. As dispatch rider helmet guru tinlid has stated, the later than WW2 dates will seriously detract from it's value. Sit on it, keep it, it's a nice thing. Just enjoy it.
