    no, they were in a local auction with some WW1 paperwork, maps and souvenirs. The auctioneers didn't know much about them so couldn't say if the items were all family related or just collected at some time by persons unknown. Its usually the same with house clearances, things get sent to auction with no thought of trying to see if there is anything that can link various items together. Some of the paperwork is named so not all is lost. dave

    Dave I have moved your last post into the master thread on British Tommy helmets. Great to see them and without me being a pain in the butt it is best if you show each helmet as an individual thread rather than posting them all in this one, unless they are in the master thread.

    mkII (&mkI or earlier) Helmets Steel, British & Commonwealth, show yours
