White Head Wardens Helmet.

Helmet has all its original white finish to the outside, crazed from age, and most of the original black Wardens insignia painted on top, the black line over the crown has worn down from use. Inside has the original early military brown paint as found in most of these early Home Front helmets, apparently reissued from the stocks brought back after Dunkirk. The liner is in very nice supple condition as is the round liner pad which has been protected by a wool type top covering, only the second time ive found such an example. Date to the helmet is mostly under the chinstrap fixing bale but looks like 1939, liner has a clear 1939 date, chinstrap is again in very good condition.
