WWI British steel helmet, issued early WWII, with the newer WWII steel helmets in short supply these were re issued to troops heading into France and other northern coastal countries. Fitted with early WWII liner, this one, unusually has a white fibre liner suspension assembly. They were normally black, and sometimes red.

    A nice Mk1* made by Hadfields Ltd 1916-1919. Is there a white M painted on the inside of the shell? Also any dates on the liner.

    Thanks for the comment tinlid. There is only a name inside, in white chalk IAN P. As for a date on the liner, with it being white it is hard to find one, I will have to take it outside in daylight and make use of any shadow to pick it out!!
