BRITISH BOBBY POLICE HELMET

$43.99

Claimed by some sources to have been based on the spiked pickelhaube worn by the Prussian Army[2][3] it was first adopted by the London Metropolitan Police in 1863 to replace the “stovepipe” top hat worn since 1829. In 1863, the Metropolitan Police replaced the previous uniform of white trousers, swallow-tailed coat and top hat in favour of very dark blue trousers, a more modern button up tunic and the early type of helmet which had an upturned brim at the front and a raised spine at the back, running from the bottom to the top of the helmet, which became known as the “cockscomb”.
