    Brought you a small present, too. Follow the instructions carefully. First, comes the press form and then you're in the Type 98 Sun Helmet business.

    A little more info on this type of pith helmet.They were designed to be able to be worn over the Type 90 helmet to reduce the heat of the steel and in this variation you can see the loops for attachment of the Havlock /neck protection.The Japanese had several different variations of the pith helmet and I am sure because of their light weight and effectiveness in tropical climates I am willing to bet there were not many complaints about carrying them around from the soldiers who had these as part of their equipment!
