    Hello Warlar,

    The Belgian MkII looks OK, as far as the shell goes. The top screw and the chin strap are not original to this helmet.

    The Dutch M34 is OK as well. Liner is original as is the strap. Look under the flaps to find a red (faint) or black ink stamp, i.e. CM38 or so. Thats stand for Centraal Magazijn and the year of acceptance. Maybe you find a code under the slit at the rear of the shell i.e. P 38 or so. Sometimes not present (from 39 onwards).

    Cheers,
    Emile

    The screw on the Belgian helmet should be the other way around!
    Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
