    Default British Mk IV, dated 1945

    I found this one at the SOS in Louisville, KY USA today. It has a date of 1945 on the liner. There is nothing visible inside the helmet, due to the thick paint. It uses the dot-snap fastener to hold the liner in place. I am quite sure the netting is post-war, but it came with the helmet. I have been looking for a nice Mk IV, and am glad to have this one.

    Nice looking Mk IV Roger love the ghost image on the exterior left from the cam net IMO it has been on there for a long time.

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    Thank you, gentlemen. It was a lucky find for me. The lid was up on a shelf amongst a bunch of other stuff, and I just had to wonder what was under that netting. Lo and behold, a treasure!
