    Hi, tinlid! Very interesting indeed that this was made by Austin Motors! Can you tell us about how the war affected Austin Motors, please? I remember that my Grandfather had purchased a new car right before WWII broke out - or right before the USA entered the fray, and that one of his coworkers was whining that there wouldn't be new cars on the market for a good long while. My grandfather, I think (not sure), finally sold his new car to the man who was pining away for it. I expect that things were much the same in Great Britain. Very nice helmet. Thank you. : )

    Not sure if AMC was bombed or not during the war, BMB & F&L were I think. But a lot of the big companies like AMC would have had a big input into the war effort.
