LCC-LFB Change from brass to cork fire helmets Featured Print

LCC-LFB Change from brass to cork fire helmets

A significant landmark when on 14 July 1934 the LFB started to replace its traditional brass helmet with a new compressed cork design. It would be four years before the changeover was completed. The death of a firefighter, when his brass helmet touched a live cable during firefighting operations, brought about the policy change. Here the brass helmet, introduced by Captain Eyre Massey Shaw (Metropolitan Fire Brigade), a symbol of London's firemen for over seventy years, meets a modern, safer replacement.

Statue of Captain Sir Eyre Massey Shaw

Bronze statue of Captain Sir Eyre Massey Shaw (1828-1908) about 18 inches high, by Prince Victor of Hohenlohe-Langenburg. The statue is kept in the dining room of the Massey Shaw Suite, Winchester House, Southwark Training Centre. Another copy is held at Windsor Castle. Inscribed on the base are the words: To The Extinguisher from Some of His Chums, 1870. Shaw was Superintendent of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (now London Fire Brigade) and its predecessor, the London Fire Engine Establishment, from 1861 to 1891. He introduced modern firefighting methods, and increased the number of stations.
