    Default Zuckerman from the Blitz ?

    I recently bought 2 Zuckerman from a small village in Kent I was told by the owner that an older man in the village used them when he was working as a search light operator dude in the blitz. Wether this story is true I'm not sure. Apart from this I know very little about these helmets, there in slightly worn rusted condition as I think they have been kept in a damp attic for a while. The liners seem to be held in via a boot lace I'm not sure if these were applied after from wear and tear but I have provided some photos.

    My helmet is also 'bootlaced' so I think thats as it should be. The manufacture date of 4/41 is a little late for the Blitz (depending on how you define it) but the blitz period it is usually quoted as 9/40 to 5/41. Also, I would of though searchlights would be operated by trained military personel, (Im happy to be corrected of course) and this is a civillian helmet. Still, a perfectly good helmet.

    Yeah thanks I was just going by what the seller could tell me about the item as I recognised the Shape as a zuckerman but I wasn't to clear on its use

    A spot on untouched example. The lace is likely the original one, I've had a few with the same flat black lace.
