Complete British WW11 gas mask/carrier/helmet set. This is a rare British WW11 combat helmet carrier, normally hung from a soldiers back pack, but can also be hung from the gas mask carrier as in this case. The gas mask bag is complete with original gas mask. The helmet is super rare by collecting standards, it has an original plume holder welded to the side, so that the soldier could insert a feathered plume, probably for parade duties, but also possibly for going into combat, proud of the Regiment he was in as he went into battle. Plume is missing so I am unable to tell if it was British, Welsh, or Scottish, or possibly Canadian.
