The resisting power of existing steel helmets designed to protect the head against Wounds caused by the impact of rifle bullets, shrapnel bullets,shell splinters, falling coal, stones or minerals and the like depends upon the thickness of the metal of which the helmet or head shield is made. The thickness however has hitherto been restricted by th weight of the helmet. Even in the case of comparatively light but fairly strong helmets of the exlstin kinds, the method of fittin them on the said has the disadvan tage that the force of a relatively small impact is transmitted direct to the skull and may easily produce concussion of the brain orat any rate a severe bruise.
Apart from the danger of such bruises or wounds becoming infected and causing blood poisonmg, dlfiiculties arise in removing these helmuch thicker mets when they have received jagged penetrations and deep indentations becausethe metal becomes embedded in the head. Moreover such helmets in cold weather are likely to cause frostbite and in hot weather become insupportable. Accord to the invention the helmet or head shield is stamped from a resistant metal and when used for military purposes from a’known form of bullet-proof steel suchas manganese steel so that comparatively thin plate may be used, which is as resistant as plates hitherto used for n iak in helmets.
