A nice surprise purchase today in the local charity shop of all places !!
I think its a MK V turtle helmet ...and in good condition apart from the chin strap, as it is just tied on to the helmet net ( looks to have been there a long time though so possible field mod???!!) it has one swivel missing too.... the camo cover under the net is an old "hood smock cold weather" cant quite make out the date unfortunately.. (it even still has buttons!! and if it wasn't for the helmet edge wearing through could be fitted to a smock!!!) I guess this common practice for this type of helmet!?? with all the scrim tied on the net could it be N.I. used..or could it have been used in Falklands conflict perhaps???
I wont tell you the price I paid... needless to say I thought it was cheep!!!
also think its GREAT regardless!!!!
your thoughts please.....
