02 - British Siebe Gorman 12 Bolt Diving Helmet
British Siebe Gorman 12-Bolt Helmet
This is a collectable 'Pontoniers' (Ex-Royal Dutch Engineers - Army) helmet later converted to commercial. Dated around the 1950's or possibly earlier. The 6-Bolt collar is unusual; the Dutch normally used a 12-bolt. This one is fitted with a safety air inlet valve placed on the front breast plate. Comms inside the bonnet are intact.
It has matching numbers (#14779) therefore this is a rarity for this style.
History: This helmet spent several years in Holland before being purchased by a collector in the UK around 2015.
