Sorry I don't have a picture but I saw a mkII tommy helmet for sale last week and I wondered if it might have been for the Home guard?
It was the type with 3 holes drilled close together on one side of the rim so I know that means it was not for front line use but I don't know if this type was issued to the Home guard or only for other civil defence and factory guard etc.
It was painted a matt green colour, khaki or olive, I'm not sure which and it had stenciled on the front in black a capitol A over a 4 digit number, which I can't remember.
I know that A was for the Anglesey homeguard, but would they have used a 4 digit number code?
The liner was dry and crackly and the shell was quite badly pitted and rusty though a lot of the paint was still insitu and it would probably clean up quite well, though the liner would have to be treated gently as it was in the first stages of falling apart. It still had a chinstap on it and all looked to have been period and untouched.
It had a 1940 dated size 7 vero liner and the last digit of the date on the shell was under the chinstrap lug, but I could read 194?
