  1. British post war Mk4.
  2. I'm glad this helmet has gone to a good home, quite rare having Canadian markings on a British helmet.
  3. Pretty sure it's an Swiss helmet, most likely post war. But this is not my area of collecting so wait for more informed opinions.
  4. A nice Mk1*, completely refurbished stripping original WW1 paint & chin strap lugs, so is an WW2 issue helmet. Although in your case most likely done in 1937/38 as it has the Mk1 chin strap lugs. Ver...
  5. That is a lovely marked (RASC) helmet.
  6. Although not practical in use, they look pretty awesome. Any maker stamp/date, BMB by chance.
  7. Yes, & also by the AFS/NFS as protection against water from hoses & sparks/embers going the back of your neck.
  8. Top shelf helmet & net.
  9. It's an No1 helmet anti-gas curtain, introduced in late 1939. It was soon replaced by the No2 helmet anti-gas curtain in June 1940, but this time covered the whole helmet, as the No1 would have been p...
  10. Always nice to have something from the war that has family connections.
  11. It's a WW2 British helmet, with Malta style camo. This camo was used by the military & civilians on their helmets.
  12. It's an S.A net, but post war made, the wartime nets are smoother in material & are separately attached to the top small circle. But your helmet looks to be the first ones made, (wondering if liner ...
  13. An lovely Mk1*, my favorite Brit' helmets. The M donates that the rim is magnetic, has it Mk1 or Mk2 chin strap lugs & chin straps?
  14. I wondered if you had got this one, an stonking amount of money, but as time goes on will be well worth it. A really lovely flashed helmet.
  15. Is there an date on the liner?
  16. A very rare helmet.
  17. A lovely British Royal Army Medical Corps.
  18. Very nice, thanks for showing.
  19. Be nice to see that cruise visor.
  20. It's a British Mk1 anti-gas curtain, when unraveled it covers over the neck & shoulders. Luckily gas was never used, so most commonly used to keep the rain off, or if an fireman the spray from the ho...
  21. Nice Mk1 HSRAC.
  22. Nice little helmet these, & quite hard to find. Mine is made by ACME, & is stamped as such, think yours was made by them too.
  23. Nice Mk1*, Mk1 chin strap lugs, Mk1 chin strap, & if ever the words Dunkirk helmet were to be used then this is it. The "M" I'm sure donates that the rim is magnetic & not the whole helmet, try a ma...
  24. Post WW2, the shell would be an M1.
  25. A post war US M1 liner.
  26. A very nice & rare combination of private purchase, hessian cover & net.
  27. An nice good example Mark.
  28. Stunning!!!!
  29. I wondered who got this lovely Mk1*, well done. That's why I said refurbished 1937-39ish, as I have seen a few with 1940 dated liners so can't be exact with the date. Standard paint scheme from 193...
  30. These were called an Mk1*, refurbished WW1 helmet shells. Done 1937-39ish. So the insignia would have been applied early WW2, then sometime during the war the white with an R. Always nice to see Mk...
  31. I know a lot of collectors weren't sure about this helmet, but I couldn't fault it. A nice rare helmet.
  32. Lovely looking NFS helmet, M.W will most likely be a large business in the area who had enough employees to have their own fire brigade.
  33. A very desirable helmet, & especially with all that info to go with it.
  34. Royal army service corps, & another nice helmet.
  35. Nice looking helmet, yellow/red Royal Armoured corps. The service No. is for the general service corps.
  36. EC&Co (E. Camelinat & Co Ltd) I posted up one here 6 months ago, same maker.
  37. Really nice, not sure if it is just an Messenger, or part of the PAMS ( Police Auxilliary Messenger Service) mostly people aged between 16 & 18 yrs old.
  38. Lovely G&S.
  39. Neat, never seen one before.
  40. What a beauty.
  41. Nice helmet, looks like a size 7 3/4's as there are no rubber buffers on the head band.
  42. The colour I'm sure is Dutch CD, but what's quite interesting is the fixing for the liner. Not seen that before, but then again I'm not really up on Dutch helmets.
  43. WD might be for the maker William Dobson, the liner & chin strap looks like the Dutch type used early war. Maybe they used up these until 1955-56 when the Dutch started making the Mk2 clone?
  44. A really nice helmet of the 6th Middlesex HG, I have No.7 & 3.
  45. Not my field the US M1, but it does look to be WW2 issue.
  46. Outstanding NFS Mk2.
  47. Great lid, pretty sure the net is a WW2 South African made one, which are very rare & hard to get. The Brits, & also NZ, & Oz troops are seen with these nets.
  48. If you look at Petey's white Police helmet with the three pips to the front from 3 months ago, you will see this one has the Mk2 chin strap lugs which is on a Mk2 helmet. Not sure if there are any M...
  49. The chin strap lugs are the Mk3's which came into use in 1939, pretty sure all Mk1* had the Mk1 & Mk2 chin strap lugs. But it's the near perfect roundness of the shell which makes this a Mk2, the Mk...
  50. I don't think it's a Mk1*, they were WW1 helmets refurbished in 37-39ish. This one looks like a Mk2, are there any markings on the shell?
