Article about: A friend bought me this Picture post because of the picture on the front. It's dated October 25 1941.

    Default RAC 1940 helmet

    Here's a pin head sized (good enough for display don't think I'd be driving around in the car with this anyway)) RAC helmet for your pleasure. Very similar to the British miners helmets of the time
    Pictures tell all.
    Anybody else have an example to show?

    enjoy

    Hi René, sadly I don't have one of these to share.

    Your is a great example. These are not common to find. I saw one for sale earlier this year, dated 1941, at £175 complete with the microphone and headsets.

    Cheers, Ade.

    hehe it's the smallest head I have and the poor bugger usually gets a 18 pdr shell case rammed up the neck to lift it up for my other small sized head gear

    They don't come in much better condition than your HCRAC, I think these little helmets are great & have a lot more character than the steel ones. Here's a few of mine.

    Thanks Aaron
    Lovely to see some others and two different makers at that and I love the period photos as I've never seen them in use
