    Hi Didier, I live a few miles from Bournemouth, and another helmet I had with the same initials I was told was Bournemouth corporation transport.
    So could be.
    Thanks

    ...all nice helmets....over the years I've catalogued over a thousand different CD helmets and still haven't scratched the surface....I love it when folk guess or have been assured by "experts" ......these have included "R/C" = Roman Catholic (I guess it could have been had it not be for the "/"), "NHSR" = National Heavy Service Rescue, "M" = Middlesex, "ACC" = Assistant Crowd Controller, "CWD" = Chemical Weapons Dump, "DHW" = De-Haviland Warden, "BAE" = British Aerospace Engineering.....

    .....and I think most of us have got one or two (or more) we just don't have clue about.........like:-

    MU
    FJAR
    AA
    PWGH
    NAFD
    IS
    BCPT
    MH
    CWD

    ...the list goes on

    A lot of the unknowns are factory helmets, carrying the company initials (eg. R&R = Ransome & Rapier) and it may be possible to find the company via internet trawling but a lot of them aren't in business any more or have been eaten up by competitors......

    ......and now they've started to fake them too!!!!!
