Royal Tank Corps 11th Armoured Car Company Sun Helmet.
A rare 1920's period example, of the Wolseley pattern foreign service helmet. Tailored with nine fold pagri, this retaining original pagri cloth unit badge, the RTC colours with embroidered "11". To the front a regimental collar badge. Complete with early style interior of green and cream cloth, complete with leather sweatband and chinstrap. Some service wear and a few moth nips to the pagri badge, otherwise a very good untouched example.
The style of the pagri and interior indicate this to be an early 1920's issue.
