    A fibre rim HSAT which were only made by BMB & produced in 1942, painted khaki green inside & out.
    Very hard to find as all fibre rims are including the HSDR & HSRAC as they were only made for a short period in 42.
    That's probably why it's one of my favorites.

      Not being well versed on helmets, would you please explain HSAT & BMB as well as HSDR & HSRAC. Be more interesting.

      The P-type helmets, those used by the para's, despatch riders & Royal armoured corps made of steel & domed shaped were officially called helmet, steel, Airbourne troops, or Helmet, Steel Despatch Riders or HS Royal Armoured Corps.
      A bit like the Mk2 helmets, they were officially also called Helmet, Steel, Mk2 No1.
      BMB or Briggs Motor Bodies were one of the major producers of the Mk2 & the P-type helmets during the war, & post war.
      Other markings on the Mk2 steel helmets are:
      HBH, Harrison Bros. & Howson
      JSS , Joseph Sankey & sons
      WD, William Dobson & Sons
      RO&CO, Rubery Owen & Co
      F&L, Fisher & Ludlow
      EC&Co, E. Camelinat & Co.
      But there are many more, some we know & a lot we don't.

      Thanks. I'm almost sorry I asked as I didn't think it was going to be so extensive. I'll file the basics in my memory bank if there are any cells left.
