Ello' Ello' Ello! Lay down the law with this Traditional Police Hat from Wicked Costumes. Commonly known as a Custodian Helmet and technically known as a 'Home Office pattern helmet', this hat was worn predominantly by policemen in England and Wales.
The helmet is the traditional headgear of the "bobby on the beat", worn by male constables and sergeants on foot patrol in England and Wales. Its design is based on the late Victorian British Army Home Service helmet and was adopted by the Metropolitan Police in 1863 to replace the top hat formerly worn, and other forces soon followed suit. This hat is made from a tough black felt material complete with silk effect band and silver police badge which gives a more authentic and vintage look.
