HELMETS & HEADGEAR – BRITISH & COMMONWEALTH
German steel helmet M accepted for service in , was considered to be the best sample of military protective clothing of that time by the end of the Second World War. M prototype became a model M sample of , which was used in the first world war. M became lighter, the sizes of its peak and cone neck-flap, covering ears from a soundwave and fragments, changed.

More recently, helmet requirements have included ballistic and blunt trauma protection, but neurotrauma from primary blast has never been a key concern in helmet design.

WW1 British Northumberland Fusilier’s Brodie Helmet
Joe Biden accepts Democratic nomination. Scientists from Duke University have revealed that World War I helmets perform remarkably well against shock waves compared to their modern high-tech counterparts. Researchers then placed the head directly underneath a shock tube, which was pressurized with helium until a membrane wall burst, releasing the gas in a shock wave, Duke University explained in the statement. The French helmet, however, did not show the same performance with pressure sensors located in other positions.
Experts say the research project could help improve blast protection of future helmets. Read Next.

More recently, helmet requirements have included ballistic and blunt trauma protection, but neurotrauma from primary blast has never been a key concern in helmet design.
Only in recent years has the threat of direct blast wave impingement on the head—separate from penetrating trauma—been appreciated. Helmets were mounted on a dummy head and neck and aligned along the crown of the head with a cylindrical shock tube to simulate an overhead blast.

A complex leather chinstrap system is fitted on top of the oval pad and threads down either side of the liner, being passed through two rectangular wire bales, one either side of the rim, and coupled to a second strap that is the chinstrap proper, that features a single-prong metal buckle.
