Stunning lot that came from a long standing collection
Comprising of a green Home service helmet
With white metal fittings , spike chain etc
Splendid Victorian crowned helmet plate for the -
Oxford University Rife Volunteers
Internally it has its Original leather liner band in place
Chin chain is part detached from the leather backing
But still in place and original to the helmet.
At some point the fittings have been cleaned
The fixing pins replaced with matchstick slivers
This appears to have been done fairly regularly -
I’ve seen numerous badges etc fixed the same way
These could be easily removed and replaced
I did consider doing it but would rather leave as is.
Unfortunately helmet isn’t named
But it came with a beautiful lidded pewter tankard

All I can surmise the helmet belonged to one of them
The tankard itself has a glass bottom,
