    Default MK2. New Zealand

    This NZ Mk2 completes my my hunt for Commonwealth helmets, (at the moment anyway).
    They are very hard to find but Mick kindly gave me a heads up, so here it is.
    Quite worn & without a chin strap, not sure if it would have come with an NZ strap or Australian or British one. As the shells were made by Australia, liners the same, or British, only the chin strap lugs seem to be NZ?
    Lugs dated 1941, shell stamped CS (Commonwealth Steel) 178, liner is British, & made by AG&Co 1942.
    So do I need a British strap, Aussie or New Zealand strap?

    Well done Aaron, a rarely seen bowler for sure. Leon.

    Yep a nice lid and I reckon a Kiwi/Oz strap would be good if you can get hold of one, didn't know they were different.

    Good to see you got it Aaron,pity it isnt a Dunlop liner or similar but British liners are quite common to find on NZ lids early on.
