  • Italo-Norman Helmet - 18 gauge

    The Normans were descended from the Viking raiders that settled in Northern France. Norman comes from the Medieval Latin "Northman/Norseman" meaning Viking. The Normans invaded England in 1066 and defeated the Anglo-Saxons at the Battle of Hastings. They began the conquest of Sicily in 1061 and completed it in 1091 with total dominance over the island. 

    The Norman "Nasal" Helmet was based on earlier Viking Helmet designs and could be worn over a chainmail coif or with chainmail aventail to protect the neck. The nasal bar was designed to protect the face but meant that Knights were often unrecognisable. The famous Bayeux Tapestry shows William the Conqueror tipping his helmet back to reveal his face and prove to his soldiers that he was still alive!

    Our Italo-Norman Helmet is constructed from polished 18 gauge steel and features an adjustable leather liner and buckled leather chin strap. Not recommended for contact re-enactment.

    Buy the Italo-Norman Helmet with confidence from the UK’s leading Norman helmet retailer.

  • German Paratrooper Helmet

    The Fallschirmjäger was formed in 1935 and it became apparent that they would require different kit to that of the regular infantry. The existing M1935 "Stahlhelm" was adapted by removing the projecting visor and flared rim to become the M1938 "Fallschirmhelm". The modified shell incorporated a more substantial leather liner and chin strap than that of regular infantry helmet and afforded a greater level of protection that was required by airborne assault troops.

    This replica is a faithful copy of an original and is constructed from 18 gauge steel with adjustable leather liner and chin strap.

    Width: 23cm
