Helmet Mk IV

Brain damage on a 1098

Known as the 'Tortoise' or 'Turtle', this is the helmet responsible for more brain tumours than Chernobyl. Introduced just after the Second World War, this baby used to bounce around like a Bangkok whore whilst on CFT. It did have its uses though - but I can't remember what they were, because I binned it in favour of a more 'ally' lid as soon as I had the opportunity.
