The Wolseley Helmet in Pictures: From Omdurman to El Alamein

By Stuart Bates with Peter Suciu. Foreword by Clive M. Law

Wolseley Cover small

The British Wolseley helmet was introduced when the empire was essentially at its zenith, and while the Wolseley has a moniker that evokes an eminent Victorian general, it is in fact a helmet more accurately associated with the First and Second World Wars. The Wolseley pattern helmet was worn by the guardians of the empire, from the Battle of Omdurman to the Gallipoli campaign to the Battle of El Alamein.

    I’m Looking for a Marine Corp Pith Helmet. I see one at the top of your inter-net page, but I can’t find it on your site. I would like a White Cotton Pith Helmet, XL if possible.
