9th Kabul Bty R.A. Wolseley helmet.
Superb example of a British Wolseley helmet with a pagri flash to the 9th (Kabul 1842) Light How. Bty. Originally a mountain battery the honour title was granted in commemoration of the ancestor battery's part in the 1st Afghan War.
With a 'Vero's patent' detachable headband the interior has the original owners name '4030740 Sgt.R.Davies' written in several places. The helmet dates from the late 1920's-30's when the Battery served in India, the original owner went on to serve in the RAF. In excellent, slightly dusty and unmothed and undamaged condition, this is as good as an example as you would hope to find to a small unit.
