    Here's one I thought I better add although it's not mine, but was allowed to take pictures of.
    A Mk1* with Malta camo & net, it has the Mk1 chin strap lugs but the Mk3 chin strap meaning it was probably used long after the initial troubles on the Island.
    Liner is dated 1937, see how the rust marks have bled through onto the net. Have forgotten what the flash was on the side though.

    One more for tonight gents another we bit of an odd duck.
    This Mk II helmet I do consider it a one off as most of the Saint John Ambulance Brigade helmets I have seen are painted white and bare the Brigades coat of arms which most of the time is applied to the front with a water slide decal.
    The helmet was manufactured by General Steel Wares And Aluminum Goods ( G.S.W. ) / Department Of Pensions And Health ( D.P & H ) and sports welded helmet lugs which denotes this helmet as being manufactured for civil defense the liner is in a size 7 1/2 and was manufactured by Viceroy ( V.M.C. II ) and is dated to 1942.
    Interestingly enough this helmet has been brush painted in a flat mat black and bares the name of the owner etched on the inner rim one Ed Thomas.
    There is a small group of S.J.A.B members that served outside Canada in various capacities. Most served in the United Kingdom while others served in the Mediterranean Theater,Belgium and Germany Staff members signed a contract in 1942-43 for the duration of the war and as long as needed after that. In 1944-45, contracts were for a minimum of one year.
    There were 220 members of the St. John's Ambulance Brigade that answered the call and left Canada for overseas service a few of these members served in the actual theater of war as a welfare worker's, nursing aid's, ambulance or transport driver's and or member's of Overseas Headquarters Staff.
    I have had very little luck researching the owners name but often wonder if he was one of the few that served in the ETO possibly as an ambulance driver .

    Mark,

    Silly question, but have you tried contacting the archives people at SJAB Grand Priory?

    If you havent, it might be worth a try, I should be able to get an address for you for the UK archives, sometime over the next week or so, (I am a UK volunteer with SJA in Hampshire) Whether they can help with the Canadian side though, I dont honestly know.

    Regards etc

    Thought you gents mike like a Pre arrival peak at a Canadian C.L.C. 42 I just acquired last week although the most common year of manufacture a very nice example to have in ones collection I was drawn in by the patina and ghost image on the shell left from the net.
    I wont be 100% positive on the net as Canadian till I get it in hand but the weave is near Identical to my early first variation two tone camo nets the burlap and oil cloth scrim IMO looks to have been attached to the net for some time all and all a nice helmet.

    As to the S.J.A.B. helmet Ian that would be good of you if you could do that for me I would greatly appreciate it .

    Regards Mark K
