British & Commonwealth sun helmets

Article about: And the other odd Foreign service helmet, the Mediterranean Pattern, complete with theater prop department stamps. A lot about this seems correct, but not sure, it was however very cheap and

    Looks to be, not sure what the other parts is or why it would be marked with the division & RAC, unless the helmets were unit issued rather just to individual soldiers.

    Maybe a bulk lot were sent to the 7Div RAC Q Store who then added their own identification.

    Default 2nd Infantry Division Sun Helmet

    Just thought I would add this one that I picked recently. A bit grubby but not in bad condition overall. It is dated 1940 but has no broad arrow, although it does bear the flash of the 2nd Infantry Division.

    Hello, I'm new to this forum but I am on other forums with similar interest in mainly Scottish militaria. This is an old thread however I thought I'd share my WWII period Highland Light Infantry Officer's Sun Helmet, maybe give some life to this old thread so more examples may be shown in the future. Named to "A Gollan" and has a beautiful Mackenzie tartan flash to one side with a white plume standing out. Currently my favorite sun helmet in my collection. Overall good condition.

    A recent addition of mine, a WWII period sun helmet to the Seaforth Highlanders. The helmet is attributed to then Second Lieutenant Alexander Harper McKillop. McKillop was born in 1913 and served in the ranks of the London Scottish as some point before 1941. In 1941 he was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Seaforth Highlanders (emergency commission), and served throughout the war as a Second Lieutenant in the Seaforths. Post-War he was a Lieutenant in 1950, a Captain in 1952, a Major in 1963, and he retired in 1964.

    The sun helmet itself is in great condition, and has on it a MacKenzie plaid tartan patch. No chinstrap but good condition liner. Overall nice sun helmet to the Seaforth Highlanders.
