Irish Free State Model 1927 Vickers Steel Helmet With Chin Strap, Liner & Irish Free State Badge. HE 866 - HE 866
This is an excellent Irish Free State P1927 Steel helmet and badge. The Vickers helmet, in spite of its British manufacture, its ‘German’ style rendered it the butt of much anti-Irish British propaganda. During the 1920s the newly formed Irish Defence Forces began looking for a steel helmet. At first the French Adrian model, named after its inventor, August-Louis Adrian, was tested on a limited scale but was found to be unsatisfactory. Eventually it was decided to choose the German helmet used in the First World War, and in November 1926 the Irish government approached the German consulate requesting a modern sample. The German Foreign Office’s reply, dated 30 December 1926, advised that the export of steel helmets was prohibited under the terms laid down by the Versailles Treaty, and for that reason they were unable to comply. So the Irish Free State had to look elsewhere. An order for the helmets was placed with Vickers & Co. Ltd, London, and the design was to be based on the German pattern worn during the Great War. The German consulate in Dublin reported to the Foreign Office in Berlin on 16 August 1927 to the effect that Vickers & Co. had been asked to deliver the helmets ‘to be tested for their expediency during the autumn manoeuvres next year’. The helmet produced was similar to the German one except that the sides were more gently sloped and it was painted a dark shade of green. The most relevant features were the two small brackets affixed to the front to hold an officer’s pattern cap badge painted black and worn by all ranks when the occasion required. On the inside rim of the centre of the rear was a die-stamped inscription ‘V Ltd.’ with a serial number. The interior fittings were completed in Dublin by ‘T. Smith & Son, Dublin’. This helmet is numbered "7224" (Approx 10,000 were made) followed by "V Ltd P 167/27" stamped inside at the rear. It has the three tongue liner pads with draw string and leather liner band. The helmet is fitted with Irish Free State badge. The helmet is in very good undamaged condition. The leather chin strap is complete with buckle. The helmet is approx. UK size 7. The price includes UK delivery. HE 866
