    Default 1941 Brodie Helmet - MK2

    I picked up what appears to be a Mk2 Brodie Helmet off of eBay and I want to make sure everything looks relatively good in terms of originality. I am leaning to the chin strap not being original as I thought the early MK2s had the elastic chin strap.

    The shell reads 1941 and the maker is I believe Briggs Motor Bodies Ltd of Dagenham.

    Any help would be very appreciative!

    See Below for some high resolution pictures I took a few minutes ago.

    Ignore the hue, the lighting did that.

    Post war refurbished wartime mkii. the liner is the post war type and is probably dated late 40's. The mkiii chinstraps did first appear in 41 but I assume this is a post war fitted example. Hard to see the paint clearly but probably repainted.

    I hope the price was not too bad.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Paid 70 USD for it. I wasn`t looking for the best example out there, just nothing with reproduction parts. I hate repros

    A bit too much I think. Its not a repro, just a post war re issued example.

    Yes reissued to Canada post war DREO or DPEC no one is sure what the liner is so posed to read but it is from Canada.

    WW2 British helmet shell, most likely stripped then repainted. British liner,one of four manufacturers post war, CCL, DPEC, FFL, REM.
    Doubt it was used by Canada, they had the US M1 post war, so would have had plenty of their own Mk2's with the VMC liners.

    Yeah, 5 years is a long time on a forum. It's DPEC (unknown maker) while on the old thread they had it as DREO? Which is where the confusion with Canada came from, maybe Mark will throw some light on this.
    But pretty sure it's an British liner.
