Good afternoon all,
I've just acquired this helmet, I believe it be a mk1 Brodie with Royal Artillery insignia, would anybody differ? What I really want to know is if this could be from the North Africa conflict? The shell is dated 1939 and the chinstrap lugs are dated 1938 which makes me suspect it would be a bit too early for North Afrika as Mk11's where in use by then. The shell does appear that be painted in desert colours so if anyone could offer some info I would be very interested to hear it.
