Mk1*

Article about: A bit battered & bruised, but this Mk1* looks to be an early one. Rimless, Mk1 liner dated 1937 & made by HELMETS Ltd, being the first year they made Mk1 liners. Mk1 chin strap lugs

    Thanks Tinlid,
    I love your raw edge version it has oodles of character ! Does the rim angle down more than usual or is it the angle of the camera ?

    Well spotted Roger, yes the rim angle is steeper than the others that I have. Maybe Edgar Allen & Co Ltd helmets have more of an angle on their rims?

    I got this Mk1*, can't resist them at the moment.
    Made by Vickers 1916-17, chin strap lugs dated 1938, can't find maker/date on the liner but it's the largest size they do, 7 3/4's as there are no rubber buffers.
    It's obviously lost it's nut & bolt & been replaced by a type of rivet, which in a way defeats the object of being a Mk1*.
    To one side is an black/yellow/red flash which I believe is not for Belgium, but I know the Norfolks had the same colours?
    On the other side of the helmet is another flash, black & white, again ? So any idea's.

    Nice one, Aaron ! Love those MKI*s.

    Can't help with the flashes I'm afraid. What is the number/mark beneath the white "M" ?

    Hi Steve, You & me both.
    Below the M is an 3.

    Hmm, what do you think the 3 means ?

    The M means the rim is magnetic, so why would there be an 3 as well?
