Super rare WW11 Canadian tank crew helmet, made in Toronto, and complete with head harness, and tank crew headphones, very rarely seen in this complete condition.

    Thanks for looking, BELLIN68, and in answer to your question miKKoChristmas11, the skull cap in these helmets was purely for attachment of the earphones. Probably a good idea in a tank, as I can imagine the crew were thrown about whilst on the move, and by using this, the earphones were kept in place, probably life saving as you would not want to miss any command which would get you out of trouble ! I have seen photos of the helmets being worn without the skull cap as well. I am not sure if they were still used when crews were issued with steel helmets.
