    The Mk1 liner was produced from 1937-early 39, yours will be dated 38 or 39.

    Mk1 liner was from 37-39, you will see both Mk1 & Mk2 liners dated 1939. But what makes it confusing is seeing a 1940 dated Mk2 liner but with a 1 above the date when it should have a 11.
    The reason for the Mk2 liner instead of the Mk1 was for simplicity of manufacture, the Mk1 was more complicated. With the amount of helmets & liners that had to be produced for the war effort a way had to be found for non skilled labour to make the liners.
    So the Mk1 had the round crown pad while the Mk2 has the rubber cruciform pad, the Mk1 had riveted buffers while the Mk2 has push fit rubber buffers.

    I thought all British helmet shells were the same size, so any liner will fit I think.

    As you posted, if it had been a German helmet, the liners are different sizes to suit the different size shells and a logical assumption would have been to think it was the same for the British.
