Just got this G&S made para helmet, the same one Paddyrat showed a few weeks ago.
The same nearly as the BMB made MkI HSAT that were produced in 1943 only, but with a few differences. Most obviously is the colour dark brown & in which they painted the liner securing nuts which they did'nt do on the BMB.
The G&S helmets had riveted straps only it seems, though they were interchangeable with the BMB's. Also the 3 rivets to fix the straps together were configured differently to the BMB's.
