Default Band Helmet - 1st/15th Royal New South Wales Lancers

Here's a recent pickup of mine.

A now obsolete white band members helmet worn by members of the 1st/15th Royal New South Wales Lancers band.

They are now the only Royal Australian Armoured Corps regimental band left in existence.

Enjoy!

Mick

Glad you like it Phil.

Its quite a hard bit of kit to find these days. I was told most had been thrown out when the helmet became obsolete due to a change in dress regulations.

There's now one for sale on eBay. Just thought I'd post here in case anyone was after one.

I know the seller and I believe the funds from this will be going to the NSW Lancers Museum.
