HC Deb 12 August 1919 vol 119 c1086
38. Mr. RAPER

asked what steps are being taken to prevent the surplus quantity of steel helmets coming into the pos session of Bolsheviks and other law breakers with revolutionary tendencies?

Captain GUEST

I am not aware that any special steps are called for, as suggested by my hon. Friend, as no surplus stocks of steel helmets have been disposed of by the Government.


Will the hon. and gallant Gentleman take steps to ensure that when the time arises these helmets will not be sold indiscriminately to traders?

Captain GUEST

I will undertake that certainly, but, as my hon. Friend knows, every soldier who has served is entitled to keep his helmet as a souvenir of the War.
