    The left one on the last photo looks Canadian based on the colour of the shell.

    Default Mk2 AFS, Auxillary Fire Service

    A well used AFS marked helmet, Auxillary Fire Service. But as of August 1941 they became quite scarce as the NFS National Fire service replaced them, so the helmets would have been repainted & a NFS decal applied.
    The shell is dated 1938 & I think made by WD, William Dobson, the liner is dated 1939 & made by VERO & is a large size 7 1/2
    Written on the chin strap is NFS No.558363, so probably carried on into the NFS maybe.

    Default Army Mk2

    A standard dark brown factory painted army Mk2,although no date showing on shell due to the textured paint, the liner is dated 1941.
    It is a typical look of the Mk2 helmet from about 41/42, paint, Mk3 chin strap, Mk3 lining securing nut & bolt, all measures due to the shortage of materials as the war dragged on.

    A new one from me, picked up on the weekend, MKII no.2 1C homefront example, with the 3 holes in the brim. In very good condition maker marked on the shell BMB (and yes I know who that is) which is stamped so hard it shows on the top, something I think you see on their rim less versions, no date is visible, but the liner is TTC (and yes I know who they are) 1940 dated. Interestingly it appears to have had the 3 holes either miss stamped or refilled and then stamped again which is not something I remember seeing before. It has textured paint on the rim but it is less obvious on the dome.

    A nice home guard Mk2 (textured paint) (but I guess you knew that)
    Not often seen with the holes filled, can't see the reason for it though.
    If not mistaken, date looks to be 1941, just to the left of BMB. These are normally dated 40 or 41.

    Thanks Aaron, and yeh I did know, but I had to leave something to be told. I'll check it out again for a date, but I am pretty sure it's not there, though perhaps there is the slightest hint of a vertical stroke, so that maybe from the 1.
