    Default British Mk2 khaki/sand with rope net (1939)

    Hello to all,
    I share with you one of my British Mk2, color is khaki/sand smooth (not textured), brown interior.
    Shell: RO&CO QF I/1939
    Liner N1: VERO I/1939 size 7
    Hooks chinstrap: 1939
    The rope net is very particular but original, in fact in some points of contact with the shell shows signs of rust (see photo n2)
    On the chinstrap are visible the initials of the owner and the patina of the time is remarkable.
    I saw photo of helmets with similar net of troops deployed on the Burma front.
    I'd like to know what you think and I include photos with many details.

    greetings for the attention.
    Roberto

    A great looking Khaki helmet Roberto, a nice level of wear giving it a super character. Leon.

    Thanks Leon,
    for your positive opinion; I also believe that it is a piece that transmits parts of history.

    Roberto, did you buy it in Italy?

    I can't really comment apart from saying I'd buy too if I saw it.

    Nice early army Mk2, but the net to me doesn't look that old.

    Hi, Aaron
    for the net I can not say, I found it so and did not know her; I have convinced the traces of rust on it, however, what I liked was the same helmet.
