    Canadian 44 dated Dispatch Riders Helmet

    Post by kozowy1967 on Tue Mar 11, 2014 7:57 pm

    Thought you gents might like to see my 1944 C.L./C Dispatch riders helmet
    They are known in the Canadian Service as the Helmet, Crash,Motor Cyclist Steel or A 15550 I would not call it mint but it is in unissued condition and shows some light wear do to storage and handling and the remnants of a sticker or a decal on the outer shell the liner and shell are both dated 1944 the shell is a Mk I steel N# 3 and was manufactured by The Canadian Motorlamp Co. and is marked C.L./C 1944 with the capital letter S impressed in the rear of the shell denoting the size as a small
    The liner is in decent condition as well with a few blemishes do to storage the sorbo rubber is still quite supple and pliable and was manufactured by Backstay Standards and bares there company logo BS with in a circle it is in a size 7 there is a C-Broad Arrow stamp hidden behind the leather on the front crash pad .
    The later second variation knotted two tone net and goggles were added by me for the purpose of display








    Thanks for looking all comments welcome.
