    Nice helmet & net, strap is British. But there is a well known picture of an Canadian officer in Normandy I think, with this same chin strap. Why, who knows.
    Strap is non magnetic so would have been fitted on a Mk2 No.1, although this is on an Mk2 No.2C.

    I reckon that is why I had it in my head it was Canadian then.....

    Thanks.

    It came with a nice single decal Heer M42 I showed earlier tonight in the German section.

    Cheers, Ade.

    A nice helmet indeed Aaron is correct about the strap It has been associated with Canada because of Lt.-Col. John Meldram, Commanding Officer Winnipeg Rifles wore one on his Mk.III.

    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 !!!!!

    Hi Ade, I hope Charles is paying you well, this could have ended up being another £20 and no reserve estimate! A very nice MKII with an unusual chinstrap. Leon.
