    I have seen one of those at a local shop. Are they rare? And is it worth the asking price of 350 CDN?

    I have had a superb example come into work this week. A pulp helmet with original paint, 42 dated and with a decal on the side for the Worcestershire Regt. It is so nice it is living on my desk. It will not go up for sale until March 2018.

    Hi,

    We've just wrote a page about this helmet :
    .: World War Helmets - Casque HSDR, Mark I :.

    But we can't find any photos from a post-war made.
    Is anyone have one to make pictures of a helmet made in 1949 or 1953 ?

    Thanks for help.

    Here is the one coming up for auction at work in March 2018.

    It is a beauty.

    Cheers, Ade.
