Egyptian Revolutionary Helmets


So just to outline here – these are makeshift helmets made by the Egyptians whilst scrapping in their current predicament. I shall guide you through these pieces of registered army kit thus:

Your classic 1979 ‘Tribottle rag’ helmet – a must in any type of combat

A late 80’s ‘boxhat’. The bloke next to him doesn’t appear too sure of its effectiveness

A renaissance period piece of brickwear teamed with a black and cream scarf. It’s got that suave sophisticated, ‘Man about Cairo’ look.

I’m not sure that the tuna sarnie he is about to lob is gonna cause to much destruction. Old school 80’s broken bin helmet. I personally love the fact he needs to lift it up to see – does he spend the rest of the time walking in to things?

Textbook saucepaning with lifejacket combo.

I literally have no idea what this is.

And the winner by 100 miles. This bloke is going to war with 2 baguettes strapped to his ears and a ham salad roll sellotaped to his forehead. I’d definitely want to be behind him if someone lobs a load of bricks at me.

  1. Brilliant Jose. I think everyone should take a stab at designing their own helmet and then send you photos. Will give it some thought…… Meanwhile, haven’t had such a good giggle for ages. Very funny!
