Dr Livingston I presume - The pith helmet and particularly the British colonial Pith Helmet was associated with British colonial and Foreign Service history.Made from trees grown in the northern part of Vietnam. The pith helmet material can sustain heavy sunlight as well as rain. When wet the pith helmet may become a bit softer, but then dries to its original state. The Vietnamese learned the art of pith helmet manufacturing a hundred years ago from the French during their occupation.
