    Hi,
    I take it that it's a MkII, & not the MkIII turtle shaped one. The liner is normally dated on one of the cross bands, sometimes the chin strap securing lugs are dated too.
    The date son the helmet are normally on the inside brim, sometimes at the rear of the helmet, or by the chin strap lugs.
