    Default Helmet, crash, despatch riders. (economy pattern)

    Here's quite a hard one to find, HCDR economy pattern made by the Empire company. First introduced in 1940 this one being 1941 but sold to Cananda, they used all of the different types of British DR helmets until they introduced there HSDR in 1944 I think it was.
    Although called economy pattern it was made of hard rubber & fibre compound & not the rag pulp of the earlier type.

    This one is well used but with plenty of character.
    Was once an MP, but over painted.
    Thanks Roger.
