Japanese Tanker Helmet

Japanese M32 Summer Tanker Helmet

Japanese M32 Summer Tanker Helmet in very good condition! Japan devised its own tanker helmet, which was very distinct from their traditional steel helmet designs. It’s been suggested that Japanese tanker helmets were actually based on flight helmets. The summer weight version is made of waterproofed hemp with a leather liner that provides extra support in front and back.

This is a nice example of the summer weight variation of the Japanese WW2 tanker helmet. Shows normal traces of usage. One small leather ear flap piece is gone. This M32 protective tanker’s helmet has a brown cotton exterior with brown leather star attached to the front. Interior is lined with a coarse linen, black leather sweatband and light brown leather suspension. Lining is marked with manufacturer’s mark. Sides have lined brown leather ‘Y’ straps with dual ring buckles. This is an extremely nice authentic example of a very desirable helmet!
