British WWII leather civil defence helmet, dated 1941. Made when steel was in short supply in the uk. Also believed used in munitions factories, where a steel helmet might strike against metal and make a spark, causing an explosion, (not good!!)

    A nice leather helmet, they're harder than you might think they would be.
