#NatsHats: One Trick Hat

This kid’s pith helmet is so tricked out it has an attached stopwatch.

Also, has anyone thought of adding earmuffs to the timer’s helmets?  This guy looks like he could use some.

The cover of the October 1953 Flying Models magazine shows a drawing of two young men fighting about something in front of a timer.  The timer is wearing a white pith helmet with "TIMER" on the front.  The young man on the right has a red pith helmet adorned with wings, a windsock and a timer.
