Product Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a good example of a Japanese WWII Fire Brigade helmet, complete with the original “skirt” which wraps around the head for protection from fire and smoke. It is a WWII issue pattern, however it was in service post war, and had the original civil defense fire insignia on the front replaced by a 1950 pattern Fire Brigade insignia. It also has had a large number 4 painted on the side, which aided in identification when the firefighter was fully equipped, and only the eyes were visible.
