British WW11 Papier Mache and cloth Dispatch Riders helmet. Again when material was in short supply, the motorcyclist suffered, helmets being made of anything they could think of !

    I am amazed at how well made this LOOKS. It shows that the crafters that put this together were very well aware of the person that this helmet would try to protect. Even though material was scarce, this looks rugged.

    mrmajestic1, considering what it is made of, it is pretty rugged, good at the time it was made, although these type do not stand the test of time, and it is unusual to find one still in this condition, as most have cracked, or come apart over the years.
