- Description: The Brodie helmet is a steel combat helmet designed and patented in London in 1915 by John Leopold Brodie. Canadian helmet production commenced in 1940. The helmets were identical to the British original, except that the rubber "bumper" pads in the lining were only fitted to horizontal helmet band and not to the vertical bands. This helmet was made in 1942 by CL/C or the Canadian Motor Lamp Company of Windsor with the lining produced by the Viceroy Manufacturing Co. in Toronto. This helmet was later stamped 44 issue date. The helmet is in excellent overall condition with original paint and finish. The top surface has evidence of being striped with tape, most-likely reflective for emergency work. The helmet liner is in excellent shape with very little signs of wear. The rubber and foam parts are pliable and soft. The chin strap is also above par with a good elastic spring. Nice piece.
