    The kid in this video also states that the maker mark and date are on the top exterior of the helmet. He also says that his helmet is a CL/C. The picture I posted earlier is also made by CL/C so maybe this was slightly more common on their helmets than we think? I wonder if either of the other two manufacturers ever had the exterior stampings.

    Finding the Manufacture name, date and steel lot batch number stamped on the exterior of the helmet body is strictly an anomaly in my honest opinion having over 80 Canadian Mk II helmets in my personal collection and researching them now for a number of years I can honestly say these are the only two examples I have seen like this and I would hazard to guess that the sheet metal was put in the press upside down...
    Now with this said other anomalies in regards to stampings do exist on Canadian Mk II's which would be expected during production ...

    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 !!!!!

    Having just now read this thread, I want to thank Mark for his efforts.

    I have a small collection of Commonwealth WWII helmets, among them two are Canadian made. One is a G.S.W. and the other is a C.L./C. Both of these have what appear to be British liner attachment screws and one his missing several of the liner buffers.

    How does one go about finding correct replacement parts for these helmets? Are there some well known sources with available stock or has it come to the cannibalizing of other helmets of lesser value? Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Unfortunately no, parts are hard to come by more so than the helmets themselves. My local Military store has about 50 linerless helmets but can't find liners or screws. Unfortunately unless you want to go the reproduction route you are having to do the cannibalize route. You can get lucky sometimes and get them off of ebay but it is more luck than anything.
