Hi James this is an ongoing task in my collection of Canadian Mk II's just when I get them all laid out and set up by specific manufacturers production dates and steel batch codes I add another example or two and have to shift things around again Arggggg I finally gave up as I can only see this method working for me if I stop adding helmets to my collection and that is not going to happen unless hell freezes over .
Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.
Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
It's a constant ebb and flow of movement as helmets are added (or removed) from the collection. I think your display looks super as is.
Great displays !
thanks mark i and i agree its a huge undertaking for any collector showing all the different models ,liner configurations etc and would probably need an aircraft hanger to show to full effect ,the post war german helmets are a fine example as it split into east and west ,so far im up to 5 different variations of the m1 a1 genre ,then the east german m56 variations ,it just goes on ,things were so simple before the end of the second world war ,as always doug its nice to hear your thoughts and agree on the adding and removal of headgear as it comes and goes i guess a collection will evolve over time ,my displays have changed so many times i forget and no doubt a constant annoyance to this forum members ,and thanks for looking taka
