    Hello to all,
    I wanted to show you this helmet that has emerged recently during the clearance of an old house, it is a Army Mk2, much used with paint to 40%, but un-touched complete with all its components.
    I know that it is not a rarity, but I could not let it go, the idea that it came to me as he had left his original owner more than 70 years ago it seemed an interesting thing.



    Thank for looking!

    Roberto

    Hi James,
    you can certainly ask and I answer with pleasure: this helmet has been found in UK by a person I know, who gave it to me immediately; when I received a few days ago, it was still covered with dust and cobwebs!

    A MKII helmet like that appeals to me more than something that might not have seen the outside of a storeroom.

    Yes Tony,
    that's why I took it, immediately sent to me a feeling of lived history.
