The book is Combat Helmets of the World by Paolo Marzetti, who may be a member of this forum. Later printings have captions in English. Pages 218-219 have line drawings of the various British civil, fire, rescue, etc. helmets. It's a great book for identification of the world's combat helmets from the beginning until rather recently.

Got my copy of Ade's book on home front helmets, truly an eye opener on the variants out there and good on all the techie stuff too.

Well worth the price IMO.

Agreed. The only book you will ever need if Home Front helmets are what you are interested in.
If only there was a similar book for combat helmets !

Many thanks guys...'very kind - it certainly seems to have hit a spot....and I thought there was only about 6 of us out there!

...and if folk would prefer to side-step ebay please PM me. The ebay number may change (re-listing etc) so another option is email at home_front_helmets@hotmail.com .....am I sounding desperate yet? :-)




..oh, and SMP, let it lie...... :-)
