Early 1900s Exeter City Police Male Constable's/ Sergeant's 6 Panel Spike Top Helmet By Christys London With Helmet Plate. Sn 17245 - 17245
The ancient City of Exeter had their own Police Force from 1836 – 1966 when the Force amalgamated with the Devon & Cornwall Police. Police helmets were first issued in London in the 1860’s. Each Police Force had their own preference for style of protective headgear, balancing protective qualities and comfort for the wearer. Later Police helmets concentrated on protection however some early helmets were made of lightweight materials such as woven straw or cork. This is an excellent early 1900’s Exeter City Police 6 panel cork helmet. Our example has excellent finish to the blue cotton covering, vented spike top mount, patent leather brim and headband (the brim has small areas of service wear). The helmet is fitted with its original Exeter City white metal helmet plate. Inside it has its original leather sweat band. The sweatband is impressed by the manufacturer ‘Christys London Made In England’. The sweatband also has a size label ‘6 ½’. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 17245

British 1960’s-1970’s City Of London Police Male Constable's / Sergeant's Blue Serge 2 Panel Helmet With City Of London Helmet Plate Number C121 Approx UK Size 7. Sn 17244 - 17244
The style of the City of London police helmet has changed little since they were first introduced in 1865. The first style helmets had a ¾” leather band around the outside of the helmet, with a down turn brim. The later helmets had a two-style panel construction with a black leather band around the outside of the helmet and were mainly of a cork construction with wool covered and a leather band inside the helmet. The comb on the top of the helmet was brass and painted black. Today the helmet is similar in design except the outside band is made of plastic rather than leather. The comb at the top of the helmet is still painted black. There are no vent holes on either side of a City of London police helmet. This is a very good, male Constable's / Sergeant's helmet of the City of London Police. It has a blue serge body, rigid comb to provide greater protection during public disorder with blackened comb plate and a City of London blackened and gold painted metal helmet plate with collar number 'C121'. The City of London Police helmet plate is unique amongst the “Home Office” Police forces, in that the helmet plate does not feature the King or Queen’s crown in its design. The plate is basically a variation of the City Coat of arms with the dragon supporters on either side, the shield with Saint Paul’s sword in the top left quarter, the motto "Domine Dirige Nos" is on a garter. The motto means Lord Direct Us. The inside has a leather sweat band. It has a black leather chinstrap. The helmet is approx. UK size 7. This helmet is in very good condition.
