Thread: Cairns Helmet
03-26-2003, 12:57 AM #1
I recently purchased a Cairns leather helmet that was reported to have been worn by a FDNY Firefighter. I think the information is very credible.
The helmet appears to have once have been red in color and is now black. Some rubbed edges show the red.
Does anyone have any idea as to why it was once red and is now black ?
Thanks for your help.

As far as I know, the only red helmets from NYC are the Fire Patrol. Are you sure its red? Sometimes when the black paint flakes off the natural brown color of the leather can look redish. To my knowledge FDNY firefighters did not where any other color on their helmets.
