The No.3 Mk. I Despatch Rider's Helmet was one of three helmets introduced by the War Office in 1940. These helmets (the Helmet DR, Steel Mk.I or Helmet, Steel No.3 for Despatch Riders; the Helmet, Steel No.4 for Armoured Fighting Vehicle crews; and the Helmet, Steel No.5 for paratroopers) use a common shell, based upon the German paratrooper's helmet.

The Despatch Rider's helmet was fitted with a leather and webbing liner, with thick felt padding on the inside edge of the helmet. The interior crown was fitted with four web straps and a tie string for adjustment. The leather chinstrap has a brass roller buckle and snap closure. The head and neck lining were lined with wool, with a lace adjustment on the rear lining.
