I gather that hemet should/did have a strapping head guard/fitting at the beginning of its life? 

Either that, or you have the head size of that bloke in the waiting room, in the film Beetlejuice...

Yeah it would have a leather 'inner'. All three are just the metal helmet....without the interior part. 

Funny you should mention the beetle juice bloke, I saw a Joe raki in Rochdale yesterday with a pea head and the first thing I thought was beetlejuice!!

I've worked it out....its because I used the 'selfie' function on my phone to take the picture. It appears it flips writing around when uploaded

I dropped a big heavy book on it and flattened it, it took ages to mould it back to shape, still looks a bit constipated and has smashed legs 😕
