Super Rare British WWI Generals Private Purchase steel helmet. This is a mark 1 helmet, with a sharp rim, no steel band applied around the edge. Still in original apple green colour, with an Officers Private Purchase liner, (more comfortable). Even better it still has the helmets original Officers cloth cover, and red band, denoting senior officer’s rank, and badge affixed to the front. Chin strap is missing. There is an old wire fixed to the helmet which suggests it was hung on a wall as a souvenir at one time.
