**Zulu War Isandhlwana & Boer War Connections** Pre 1902, Victorian Home Service Pattern, Officers Blue Cloth Spike Top Helmet With Original The 24th (2nd Warwickshire) Regiment of Foot Helmet Plate & Transit Tin. Sn 19997:3 - 19997:3.
The 24th Foot was raised in 1689 as Colonel Sir Edward Dering's Regiment of Foot for service in Ireland under William III. In 1751 it was placed 24th in the line infantry order of precedence. Between 1782 to 1881, the regimental name was The 24th (2nd Warwickshire) Regiment of Foot. On 22 January 1879, during the Zulu War, most of the companies of the 1st Battalion were at Isandhlwana where they were overwhelmed by the Zulus. Following on from their success at Isandhlwana, the Zulus attacked Rorkes Drift where there was only one company of the 2nd/24th Foot. The Zulus were unable to take the post despite their numbers and retreated. In 1880, in recognition of these actions, Queen Victoria placed a wreath of immortelles round the staff of the Queen's Colour. Later during the Boer war elements of the Regiment arrived in Cape Colony in early February 1900 and saw action at the Battle of Elands River in September 1901 during the Second Boer War. This is an excellent, Victorian Officer's spike topped pre 1902 Home Service blue cloth helmet to the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) Regiment of Foot. It has gilt a metal cross piece, spike and rose bosses supporting a velvet backed chin chain. The front of the helmet bears the large Queen’s crown helmet plate of the XXIV 24th (2nd Warwickshire) Regiment of Foot. The helmet is complete with leather sweatband and stitched panel lining. The crown has remnants of a paper label (illustrated) most likely a maker or owner’s name and address. The helmet is contained in its original japanned tin transit case with lid & carry handle (the lid’s hinge and clasp are absent). The price for this fine helmet with Tin includes UK delivery.

Original WWI M16 German Combat Helmet Re-Issued to the Norwegian Army. 19966:37. - 19966:37
Throughout WWI Norway re-used a large number of German helmets. These helmets were left behind after the surrender of German Forces in Norway .The Stahlhelm ('steel helmet') is a German military steel combat helmet intended to provide protection against shrapnel and fragments of grenades. The term Stahlhelm refers both to a generic steel helmet and more specifically to the distinctive German military design. The M16 design had side-mounted horn-like ventilator lugs which were intended to be support for an additional steel brow plate or Stirnpanzer, which only ever saw limited use by snipers and trench raiding parties, as it was too heavy for general use. Not without flaws; the ventilator horns often let cold air in during the winter, requiring the wearer to block the vents with mud or fabric. The large, flared skirt tended to make it difficult for soldiers to hear, distorting surrounding sounds and creating an echo when the wearer spoke. In very good condition with olive drab paint and decals virtually untouched. Approximately size 58, these helmets are getting harder to find, especially in this condition. The price includes UK delivery. 19966:37.
