    And what can we say about this helmet?
    Paint color in the photo, was more intense than they really are, because I laundered before the helmet from dirt and it is still wet.

    2 British MkII helmets, the 1st one with the C with an arrow is the quality control stamp or acceptance stamp on the liner, nice to see an ink stamp instead of the normal imprinted stamp. The 2nd one looks like it was made by EC&Co (E Camelinat & Co Ltd), not sure if the paint scheme is army or home front?

    Nice Lids, Laser.

    Yes
    Stamp only w. Ltd. and a different color inside.
    I have never seen such, and therefore thought to ask here. What could it be?
    Purchased in England, but it may not mean anything.
    One person told me that it can be stamped on AMC..

    As for the medic helmet, I think it's the home front, the paint does not look like an army. Or, could it be?

    W Ltd is one of the unknowns, like most of the unknown produced in or about 1941. Most liners a black, some red, & a few cardboard colour or neutral.
