I purchased a WWII as to what I believe could be a British MK II Brodie helmet. It has stencil marks near one of the chin strap holders. An 0 to the left of the chinstrap holder and an X to the right of it, right of the X is a date 1942 and straight above the date it seams to be the number 11. On the chinstrap holder itself is a stencil mark which looks like a roman III and below it 1942. I don't see any other stencil markings on this helmet.
The liner is marked on the revers side not on the front were you see this more common. One liner strip is marked with C.C.L - below this in a row 11 - 1941 - 7 1/4 and a 7 1/4 on another piece of the lining strip, also on the revers side. Maybe they just mounted it revers. No other markings that I could see on the liner. The liner is screwed into place.
Is there a way to identify who the maker is of this helmet and liner with the markings available.
The question is as to what I actually have here. Is it a British MK II Brodie or Canadian helmet. I don't know. I have tried to research this helmet but I found nothing to convince me either way. The color is of a very dark green which almost goes into a black mix with sand. I don't no if this is the original WWII paint or not. The chinstrap seams to be original to the helmet.
All together I think I made a good deal with $60.-
