Still have one of the builder helmets in my shed,before that only cliff men had helmets [ assorted climber types ] The white ones with the visor were a big improvement being much more comfortable but we found the visor not  so good as dust would swirl up under it in any wind.

Now, a S.O.F like me can remember the "Lightweight" miners helmets used in the early days of the training centre at Brixham. I have found out since they were of shredded compressed paper and woodpulp like this
