    Default Japanese civilian fire helmet

    Here is a firemens helmet I picked in Japan with some other stuff. I donít think I have seen one posted before so I thought I would give it a post of its own. Iíve been hoping to stumble across one of these for some time.

    Although it is not in the best shape, it is exactly what I wanted, well used and definitely Ďbeen thereí. I tis complete, one of the rear straps is broken, the neck cover and helmet both have burn marks on them.

    Thanks, they turn up on e-bay from Japan based sellers regularly, it's never been high enough on my list for the full investment so I was pleased to come across this one....now I need the civilian helmet with the neck cape to go with it!

    Nice one Steve I myself couldn't resist picking one up myself! also from a Japanese seller.They just have a great look to them. I also came across a higher ranks version with additional metal banding on the helmet to indicate rank.I'm not sure what rank it is but an interesting helmet just the same. Regards,Geoff
