Hi, I noticed this section of the forum hasnt got much going on yet, so I thought I could start by posting some british war clothing and medals info. The Zuckerman Helmet - This funny looking helmet was Designed during WW2 for use by home-front workers in areas likely to be bombed. It is named after a government scientist called Solly Zuckerman. These simple shell helmets are quite plentiful, there is a slightly better modified version from the Dutch army that is a lot more scarce and collectible. The british helmet was merely laced together to an inner lining, whereas the dutch used post WW2 surplus helmets and riveted the lining in making a sturdier helmet.
