    Default Canadian Naval Pattern Wolseley Pith Helmet

    Just when I thought I was done purchasing helmets for the year this little gem came up for sale and I new I had to add it to my collection if I could
    Canadian Produced Wolseley Pith helmets are quite scarce and I never see the Naval Pattern pith helmets come up for sale in the market place so I was quite ecstatic to be able to add this example to my shelf this morning. It is nicely marked and date stamped to December of 1942 and was produced by W M SCULLY LTD of Montreal and is in a size 6 5/8 and bares the NAVAL stamp near the domes Brass breather vent.

    Regards Mark

    Oh jeez mate, that is such a shocker, from a real beauty to a victim of a road crash. I hope you can get redress for this from the shippers.

    I would be and then

    I am rather pissed Jerry Canadian produced Naval Pattern Wolseley pith helmets are very hard to come by I have contacted the seller and he said the box cleared US customs intact so happened once CP got it I will contact them later today and file a complaint .
    He has promised to reimburse no matter what the outcome I am just gutted took a long time to find one to add to my shelf .

    Regards Mark
