    Default MKII F.A.P Helmet(1939)

    Hi, I just "retrieved" this nice F.A.P helmet from my mate that I lent him 5 years ago for a 1940's weekend. I forgot I had it until I mentioned to him that I was moving into the British Home Front collecting area! Anyway, it is a nice 1939 dated piece, with F.A.P on both the back and front , plus a nice MKI liner. Me and the wife are now off to the 1940's weekend at Sheringham in Norfolk by coincidence so I hope the rain holds off! Leon.

    Which item of headgear will you be wearing Leon?

    I would say a good addition but always nice to get items you lent back and it looks a good one and will go nice with your other MKII's.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I am rather envious of you gents in the UK there was such a vast network of Civil defense and home front units during the war which means there is a wide variety of Mk II helmets to choose from and add to one's collection I do not forsee you running out of examples to add in the near future Leon have a great weekend post up some images for us to see on your return.

    Regards Mark
    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    Jake if you ever see a lid on this side of the pond that catches your fancy and the seller won't ship internationally let me know and I would be more than happy to play the part of the middle man and have it shipped to me and then repost it and send it on its way to you in the UK.

    Thanks mate but you may have just opened yourself up to some serious bombardment of continuous non stop ordering from the UK boys..........

    No worries Jake and Aaron glad to do it on occasion the boat may have to travel both ways across the puddle though once in awhile there are sellers in the UK that don't ship internationally as well so I end up not being able to bid on helmets I would love to add to my collection.
