Good Evening.......

Love garage sales at home so while away on holiday must also have a go at finding things......

Here is my latest.....

Now just to get it home.....

A Dispatch Rider's helmet that was left behind by the Canadians when they went home......

Not bad for 20 Euros......

In april 1944 different colored bands around the helmet were introducd, to distinguish between the three "wings" of the Military Police and Provost units:

- a red band, for the Provost Wing;

- a white band, for the Traffic Control Wing;

- a dark blue band, for the Vulnarable Points Wing.
