Just wanted to show a really unexpected find for me through evilbay. A BRITISH Dispatch Rider steel helmet made by BMB (Briggs Motor Bodies) size 6 and dated 1949! The interesting bit is the insignias painted on the outside, a Royal Corps of Signals Flash on one side and the usual Gibraltar Garrison Flash consisting of a Yellow key on a Red background. I never thought I would find a clearly identifiable "Gibraltar Helmet " and even though its not WW2 I am still over the moon with it considering I am from the Rock of Gibraltar. The overall paint job and the coloured stripes on the centre leads me to believe it has probably been done up for a parade. It has seen its fair amount of use as the leather chinstrap has an old repair.
