    Default F.a.n.y. Mki*

    Sadly not mine but in a friends collection, a lovely MKI* with flashed to the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (FANY), a very rare helmet I think, also note it is a raw edge, with WWI makers marks tot he shell and MKI chin strap lugs and chin strap. A real beauty that is not for sale though if I offered enough money for it he would sell it.

    I am very tempted by it and many of the others he has and I have only shown a % of what he has as it is hard to take pictures of it all. He has a lot of home front items, bd's, the helmets, paper work, caps medals, etc......

    That is one great helmet and collection Jerry. Your friend is very fortunate to have amassed such a great variety of Home Front items. Leon.

    I just wanted to add that these incredible collections have taken decades to amass,back in the day when it wasn't the done thing to collect,and choices and availability were much more widespread,I honestly believe that in todays market without the right contacts and financial backing you would be hard pressed at best to be able to achieve anything that even comes close to this,we can only try and keep searching.........and you say Jerry that this is only a snip of the entire collection..............

    He was talking about when he got a lot of these lids for 20 each, which was a lot of money and they were not that popular back then I would think.

    If offered the right price he would sell any or all of them.

    I would like to get my hands on the FANY and I might see what he would take for it next time I see him. I also really like the one with the 3 mushrooms on which as yet no one knows what it is for. I remember when he got that one.
