Flying Flea

₹6,950.00

This limited edition helmet pays homage to Royal Enfield’s legendary wartime motorcycle was the 126cc Model WD/RE, aka the Flying Flea. Light enough for a soldier to carry it over a wall or across a river, the Flea was hardy and adept at crossing rough terrain. When fit in purpose-built parachute cradles, Fleas could be dropped alongside paratroopers, providing them with an efficient means of delivering signals and rounding up dispersed units.

'Once the Flea had landed, all a paratrooper had to do was unscrew the single wingnut that held the two halves of the drop cradle together, lift the bike out, rotate the handlebars ninety degrees and kick the engine to life, all of which could be achieved in a matter of seconds.'

Simple, tough and resilient, the Royal Enfield Flying Flea, or WD/RE to give it its official title, was deployed as a front line combat machine during the latter stages of the Second World War. An invaluable asset to the elite soldiers of the newly-formed Parachute Regiment, it was parachuted behind enemy lines, carried in assault gliders or ferried to the beaches of Normandy in amphibious landing craft. A true paratrooper, the Flying Flea’s contribution to winning the war was noteworthy indeed.
