    I see your BMB has an Australian liner, was this issued to the Australian army?

    I'd say so, well spotted Mate, also the chin strap appears to Aust made too. The liner hasn't been replaced by a collector that's for sure. I did find it in sleeper condition.

    Nice helmets!

    Australian liner does look factory installed. Did we refit any British shells during the war?

    The British liner made by Everett Vero & Co London.

    Cheers Chris, I'd say we would have re fitted for sure, but I have no proof though.

    For me it's more on the suspension material, here's another example from a Warden's helmet.
