WW2 Tommy Helmet Carrying Strap. Khaki

British Mk2 Tommy helmet carrier. This was helmet bag/carrying straps was used on the Home front in WW2.

We have seen a few of these in museums and in books but we have never managed to track down an original one. After studying one in a museum and looking at examples in books we have replicated a helmet carrier. It is made of khaki cotton with a draw cord and the adjustable strap is like the strap used on the MKVII gas mask bag.

We think the originals where locally made for use by Home Guard, ARP and Police etc to carry their helmets when not on duty. If you have any other information on these items please let us know as we would like to know.

Price is for one helmet carrier/shoulder bag, helmet is not included.

Shoulder strap is 2" (5cm) wide.
