The kettle hat was common all over Medieval Europe. It was called Eisenhut in German and chapel de fer in French (both names mean "iron hat" in English). It was worn by troops of all types, but most commonly by  infantry . The wide brim gave good protection against blows from above, such as from cavalry sabres.  They were first produced  in England around 1011, 55 years before the famous Battle of Hastings . Kettle helmets were also used  later  in  World War I and World War II  by the British  Commonwealth forces.
