Title Officer's Home Service helmet spike, white metal
Nationality British
Period c 1879 on
Sold

This is the top finial for the volunteer infantry officer's Home Service helmet, worn between 1871 and 1914. The Home Service helmet was made of cork and covered in blue cloth or sometimes dark green or grey wool with a linen lining. These helmets were influenced in their design by the Prussian picklehaube of the 19th century.

The screw thread is still reasonably sharp. There is some minor denting to the base of the spike, otherwise it is in good order.
