    Default Mk2 No.2C Battery

    I suspect most of you would have seen one of these helmets for sale at one point or another, because I believe the Birmingham Battery Company used about 3000 for their employees during the war.
    The name Battery comes from: "Nearly a century ago the founder of the firm established in Digbeth, Birmingham, a business for the manufacture of Brass Pans, which were raised from the flat sheet by what was termed a 'Battery ' of Tilt hammers. The process was called the Battery process, and the pans were spoken of as ' Battery ' or Battery Pans.
    The helmet being a No.2C is typical for use in a factory on the home front. The liner is dated 1940, the shell date stamp is missing but was made by JSS.
