Remembered Today:

Brodie Helmet--manufacturing and/or patent specs.


Recommended Posts

Can anyone post the War Office manufacturing specs for the Mk. I helmet with the small brim attached that covered the "raw edge" ?

Alternatively, the specs in the Patent granted to J.L. Brodie would also be very useful.





MODS Could you move this to correct forum, Other Equipment ?

Hello 265,


Although it does not provide the actual dimensions etc that I am seeking, the patent claim is still a very interesting read.

Brodie seems more focused on the medical benefits of the liner, than on the ballistic benefits of the helmet shell.

I wonder if that was done deliberately, to throw potential competitors off the track of his claim for a cheap, readily-produced helmet.
