    Default British Home Guard marked steel helmet

    This is quite a rare helmet. It is marked to the London Home Guard "S" Zone.

    `S` zone ran from Hamstead to Elstree.



    This helmet was found in a loft and was very kindly given to me, as my friend knew of my interest in British militaria.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I thought that I would bring this old thread back up as we have much more interest in British lids now.

    Since I published these pics back in 2008, I have seen one fake helmet painted up like mine for sale at Beltring.......

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Guys, yes the insignia is just on the one side.

    There are no visible marks to the shell or liner.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The shell might be made by F&L which would be stamped at the rear or front on the inside brim.
