SOLD SOLD (13/01) **AS ISSUED**UNWORN**Early WW2 1939 British Long Range Desert Group (LRDG) Desert Camouflage Paint Trials Textured Tan Colour Camo Tommy Combat Helmet By BMB (Briggs Motor Bodies). Sn 19205 - 19205
The Long Range Desert Group (LRDG) was a reconnaissance and raiding unit of the British Army during the Second World War. Originally called the Long Range Patrol (LRP), the unit was founded in Egypt in June 1940 by Major Ralph Alger Bagnold, acting under the direction of General Archibald Wavell. The LRDG never numbered more than 350 men, all of whom were volunteers. The LRDG was formed specifically to carry out deep penetration, covert reconnaissance patrols and intelligence missions from behind Italian lines, although they sometimes engaged in combat operations. Because the LRDG were experts in desert navigation, they were sometimes assigned to guide other units, including the Special Air Service and secret agents across the desert. Early in WW2 camo npaint trials were performed by the British army for the desert campaign resulting in the classic sand colour camo prevailing. Other colours trialled were pink which although the most effective camo colour was understandably unpopular with troops and not adopted. A textured tan colour was also trialled but again was unpopular and not adopted. Our Tan camo trials helmet was received from the family of the LRDG soldier who was issued with it. He did not wear the helmet as he preferred the classic sand camo variant. The helmet is in excellent as issued, unworn condition, complete & original. The helmet has all of its original rough texture tan camo paint. The inner rim of the helmet has date mark ‘1939’, manufacturer stamp BMB (Briggs Motor Bodies) & number ‘D41’. It has its complete padded liner, oil cloth sweat band & sprung webbing chinstrap all of which are intact. The helmet has the correct chin strap bales. The helmet is approx. UK size 6 ½. The price for this excellent WW2 trials camo combat helmet includes UK delivery. Sn 19205

The official designation for this simple 'bump protection' helmet is often suffixed M1938 or M1941. In 1938 the Ordnance Board initiated trials to find a replacement for the infantry and cavalry pattern tank crew helmets then in use (see page 130 of Government Issue Collector’s Guide by Enjames). The helmet is made from resin impregnated fibre with leather fittings and lining cradle. Typical of tank helmets of the period it provided no ballistic protection but was adequate for bump protection inside the tank.

The padded leather lining has a crisp ink roundel manufacturer stamp ‘Wilson Ath Goods Mfg Co & 7 ½ (size). It has flexible side flaps to house R-14 earphones.
