A white Woolseley helmet with a gold pin on the centre front that reads: "N.Z. Staff Corps". The helmet has a stiff foundation and is covered in white cotton twill and has a pleated white cotton band around the crown. The inside is lined with green wool and the crown is covered in white twill and a band of leather. There is a metal ring at the top with a small white cover that has been screwed on to cover it. The ring is used for a decorative gold spike which also could be screwed through the ring. There is a gold-covered metal chin strap that has links mounted on cream-coloured leather. These are attached to the sides of the helmet with modern black elastics.
