Nice helmets like your para helmet and its a nice big size if you want to sell it please let me know as i am looking for a large size helmet , the two motorcycle helmets also look good
The BMB stamp has me intrigued. You can find it on WW2 British jerrycans where BMB was 'Briggs Motor Bodies' a company based in Dagenham, UK that made parts for Ford & Chrysler prewar. They also stamped out the fuel cans and parts for the Mosquito fighter in wartime.
Did they do helmets as well??? ......... maybe!

Hi Dan to answer your question BMB did produce the P type helmet bodies as found on the HSAT and the two HSDR's the HSAT looks to have suffered a postwar repaint and the rear buckle for the harness or at least the bolt does not look correct to me hard to be positive from the little screen ony phone.
Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.
Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
Dont forget BMB made the MKII, the MKIII and the MKIV as well

Que you might get more response by posting your collection pieces in the correct sections, we have individual sections here for everything you have and many forum members who collect US helmets for example might not be looking in the German helmets section.
