    Default Mk2 No2.C Stretcher Party

    Stretcher party marked helmets were used in London while the rest of the Country the helmets were marked FAP for first aid parties.
    SP & FAP went to incidents to carry out basic first aid on casualties with minor injuries so they could go home, while those with serious injuries could be given treatment & then sent on to first aid posts or straight to casualty clearing hospitals.
    This Mk2 is a No2.C originally painted grey but over painted black with SP to front & rear, made by F&L & dated 1940. The liner is marked J.C.S & W Ltd 1939.

    I thought I had this, but had to dig around a bit in some long unopened boxes. I found it so if you don't mind I'll add it to this thread.

    It's a SP Party Leader helmet marked both sides. The liner is a MKI which isn't stamped at all, the shell has two badly stamped manufacturers marks one (best guess) is NWA & Co 1938 and the other is 56 over MH 193 (the rest of the date is under the chinstrap lug which are not dated.

    Unusually it looks like it came from the manufcaturers painted white, it is painted all over and I don't see any other colour underneath. (either that or I bought a dud, but it was years ago before these held their current value)

    Apologies for the poor photos.
