    One of my favorite helmets, the MkI*. Refurbished in 37-40ish, FS stands for Thomas Firth & sons, Sept 1915-1919. These are what can be called the Dunkirk helmet as most of the troops would have been issued with these before the Mk2 became main stream. Is there a date on the liner? 1941 issue chin strap. A very rare helmet, neat.
