NI British Army Riot Helmet


Recommended Posts

Are you referring to the GS MK6 helmet, if so i can provide a few photos of one of my own. Sadly the visor on my one has gone walkies but i still have the mounting brackets fitted to it. If i can assist then let me know and ill take a few photos for you.

 

 

All the best Ollie

There's an article in an old copy of "The Armourer" magazine that covers British body armour, etc, by Jon Bodsworth. A bloody good series, covering litterally every pattern of body armour ever worn by British troops, including experimental stuff....try their website for back-issues...I have the actual issue somewhere but need to find it :embarrassed: Anyhow, it covers the NI riot helmet (the motorcycle-style item) or, officially, "Helmet, ART" (for "Anti-Riot Topper") plus illustrations.......

 

Try Sabre Sales in Southsea, Hants.... they may have one or two original examples kicking around in the basement ? (best place for them)......:-\

I have some of these but they do not have the visors just the clips etc, makes them a hazard to others!

If anyone wants any I think I may have two(or is it four, dohh!).
