In colonial New South Wales firefighting was undertaken by volunteer brigades whose ability to respond to fires would vary. By the late 1800s the need for a professional fire fighting organization was recognized. In 1884 the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (the precursor to the New South Wales Fire Brigade) was formed in Sydney Australia. This helmet is a fine example of the protective headgear provided to firemen in the NSW Brigade. Our NSW Fireman Helmet, New South Wales Fire Brigade is made from brass, 1890-1900. This Brass Fireman's helmet comes with the inscription 'NSWFB' embossed over centre front. The NSW Fireman helmet has a cockade embossed with fire breathing dragons. It has a short peak at the front and a deeper rim at the back. Includes the Brass chain strap.
