British WWII Experimental Cruise Visor steel helmet. Approx 5000 made in early WWII, with a view to protecting eyes from shrapnel splinters, many were lost after Dunkirk, and helmets proved not to be popular due to restricted vision. Very scarce helmet.

    I'm reminded of the Roman 'murmillo' helmet!
    The Andabata gladiator fought blind in Ancient Rome wearing a helmet that deprived him of vision. Perhaps that was the idea?

    Is there a date/maker name on the visor, can't remember if these were made by BMB?
