Framed Print of LCC-LFB Change from brass to cork fire helmets

LCC-LFB Change from brass to cork fire helmets

LCC-LFB Change from brass to cork fire helmets
A significant landmark when on 14 July 1934 the LFB started to replace its traditional brass helmet with a new compressed cork design. It would be four years before the changeover was completed. The death of a firefighter, when his brass helmet touched a live cable during firefighting operations, brought about the policy change.

Framed Print of LCC-LFB Change from brass to cork fire helmets

A significant landmark when on 14 July 1934 the LFB started to replace its traditional brass helmet with a new compressed cork design. It would be four years before the changeover was completed. The death of a firefighter, when his brass helmet touched a live cable during firefighting operations, brought about the policy change. Here the brass helmet, introduced by Captain Eyre Massey Shaw (Metropolitan Fire Brigade), a symbol of London's firemen for over seventy years, meets a modern, safer replacement

We are proud to offer this print from London Fire Brigade / Mary Evans Mary Evans Picture Library in collaboration with London Fire Brigade

London Fire Brigade is a world class fire and rescue service for London, Londoners and visitors
