    Good Evening.......

    Love garage sales at home so while away on holiday must also have a go at finding things......

    Here is my latest.....

    Now just to get it home.....

    A Dispatch Rider's helmet that was left behind by the Canadians when they went home......

    Not bad for 20 Euros......

    Typical Dutch pavement.
    Spending your holidays over here?
    Nice helmet, and 20 euro's is a bargain.
    One little note: doesn't the white paint look a bit fresh after 70 years?

    Garage Sale in Holland...... Empty British Dispatch Rider's Helmet

    The 20 Euros was an exceptional price for the British manufactured helmet. Unfortunately the MP paintwork and 'left behind from WWII' story are most likely fabrications.
