    The name Battery comes from: "Nearly a century ago the founder of the firm established in Digbeth, Birmingham, a business for the manufacture of Brass Pans, which were raised from the flat sheet by what was termed a 'Battery ' of Tilt hammers. The process was called the Battery process, and the pans were spoken of as ' Battery ' or Battery Pans.
    The helmet is a No.2C, typical for use in a factory on the home front. The liner is dated 1940, the shell date stamp is missing but was made by JSS.
