Victorian New South Wales, Australia, Brass Firemans Merryweather Helmet and Liner. Sn 13523 - 13523
A Victorian New South Wales, Australian brass Fireman's Merryweather helmet and liner. Merryweather helmets were used by British fire brigades from the Victorian era until well into the 20th century. These helmets were modelled on the helmets of the Sapeurs-pompiers which Captain Sir Eyre Massey Shaw had seen on a visit to Paris and introduced to the Metropolitan Fire Brigade in London in 1868, replacing a black leather helmet. The design was widely copied by other British and British Empire fire services. These helmets were made of brass, but those belonging to officers were silver plated. Metal helmets are conductive, a safety hazard as use of electricity became widespread, so a new helmet made from a composite of cork and rubber was introduced in London and elsewhere from 1936. However, during World War II, military-style steel helmets were adopted, similar to the Brodie helmet used by the British Army, to improve protection during air raids. A composite helmet was reintroduced after the end of the war. Traditional brass helmets remained in service in Queensland, Australia until 1970. This brass helmet is in excellent condition and is complete with the leather and brass chin strap, leather liner and thick leather sweat band. It is badged on the front to "N.S.W. F.B." (New South Wales Fire Brigade). The combe on the top is secured with 9 dome headed brass nuts and bolts. It is also soldered to the helmet rim at the back. The peak and neck flap are both edged in brass. It is in very good condition, showing only normal use marks, The chin strap is secured with two rotating rosettes, one either side. This is a excellent example of the brass Merryweather helmet. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13523
