From Linda: Don’t know who generated these photos and text, but necessity is the mother of invention… whatever it takes to survive!


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 non standard army kit:


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. Textbook



I’m not sure that tuna sarnie he is about to lob is gonna cause to much destruction. Old skool 80s 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 def wanna be behind him if someone lobs a load of bricks at me.
