    Question Helmet identifying - Need help

    Hello people! i have an unknown helmet i picked up for $20 in missouri, i am un sure if it is american or british, it had scraps of a leather liner and canvas chin strap, wich were in such bad condition i had to discard them after they fell apart. The line has a date of 1945 on it.

    I think its probably British. Have a good look on the inside of the helmet, if it's British it should have an upward pointing arrow somewhere.

    This is a British or Canadian MkII helmet of the WW2 era. You can identify the maker of the liner and the shell by giving us the letters and figures stamped into the brim of the shell. The liner should have the size and maker mentioned on one of the supports.

    Cheers.

    Hi,
    i would also say Mk 2 brodie W.W.2, going by the liner and whats left of the Mk1 strap. But the liner would have had rexene pads
    but this has been altered by the a previous owner.
    Good helmet though.
