  • Templar Transitional Helmet - 16 gauge

    1 Review(s)

    The Templar Helmet is a style of transitional helmet that dates from the 12th - 13th century. This was a period when the open-faced flat topped helmets gradually evolved into the more protective Great Helms of later periods. The addition of a full face visor afforded much more protection than the simple nasal bar of the previous centuries – at the cost of better vision and ventilation.

    This helmet is constructed from 16 gauge steel and features an adjustable leather spider liner and buckled chin strap. 16 gauge steel construction is suitable for most re-enactment groups.

    Height: 31cm
    Width: 21cm
    Depth: 26cm
    Circumference: 64cm
    Weight: 2528g

  • British WWII Air Raid Warden Helmet

    During World War II, Air Raid wardens had the task of patrolling the city streets during blackout to ensure that no light was visible. If a light was spotted, the warden would alert the person responsible by shouting "Put that light out!" or "Cover that window!". The wardens also patrolled the streets during air raids and doused incendiary bombs with sandbags where possible. 

    For protection they were issued with the “Brodie” Helmet. This was the traditional British Army helmet from both World Wars and gave effective protection against airborne shrapnel. It was used by all services of the military as well as firemen and medics. Warden's helmets were painted dark blue and featured the letter "W" for Warden in bold white writing. Chief Wardens wore white helmets with blue/black lettering to make them easily identifiable.

    Please note: The circumference of the inner lining of this helmet is 21”. It is perfect as an educational aid for children or for display but will not fit most adults. 

    Width: 30cm  
    Depth: 32cm  
    Height:15cm
    Outer Circumference: 60cm
