WW11 South African Rand Helmet

WW11 South African Rand Helmet

Code: 55867


A particularly nice example of a WW11 South African “Rand Helmet” in overall very good condition.

The shell is completely without damage and retains virtually all of the rough sand coloured finish, the back of the rim with three holes to take a neck shade.

Inside, the liner tongues remain soft and with breaks whilst both the crown pad and chinstrap are very good.

During World War II the Union of South Africa participated with other British Empire forces in battles in North Africa against Erwin Rommel and his Afrika Korps, and many South African pilots joined the Royal Air Force and fought against the Axis powers in the European theatre.
