Canadian Dispatch-Rider’s Helmet

Canadian Dispatch-Rider’s Helmet 1944

This is a WW2 Canadian Dispatch Rider’s helmet. The Mk1-Nr3 was originally introduced in October of 1942. Nice complete liner and chinstrap system. Its natural leather sweatband is dated 1944, and maker marked BS, being the manufacturer’s initials and 6 3/4 indicating the size. Shell is nicely marked C.L./ C. and 1944 dated (Canadian Lamp Company). The biggest difference between British and Canadian DR helmets is that Canadian helmets are fitted with rubber instead of horse hair and they have wider chinstraps. 

Hard to find, untouched helmet Canadian DR helmet!
