    Default MK 1 English, Estonian re issued steel helmet

    Unfortunantely not in good condition, but it's only one seen in original Estonian configuration. Has Estonian type liner ring, and looks like the helmet has hand made leather liner ( seen other types as M16 German and M17 Russian-Sohlberg type with hand made leather liners)

    How common was the British helmet? I know the German pattern was the most prevalent and I've seen some photos of Estonians wearing French Adrian pattern helmets.
