    Default MkI HSRAC

    Here's a MkI HSRAC (Helmet, steel, Royal armoured corps) still with it's original dark brown paint.
    Brought into service in 1942 the first ones being the fibre rim type to give better balistics than the HCRAC (Helmet, Crash, RAC) the fibre type.
    The liner is dated 1944 & made by BMB, can't find a date on the shell.

    Thumbs up Re: MkI HSRAC

    A nice example.Thats another one on my ever growing list of helmets!
    I see its got the elastic webbing chinstrap..when did the quick release version come into use?
    Ive also heard these are getting scarce because airsofters are converting them into Para helmets?

    The quick release chin straps probably came in with the MkII HSRAC, the one with the lift the dot liner. If it did then there's a good chance that it never got used during the war.
