    A neat early police Mk2, I would like to know if there is any significance regarding the font on your helmet, as it's slightly different than normal. I was told it was used on women police helmets but I'm not sure, can't see why.
    I remember it was mentioned before about the unusual font on this Police, but had not heard it was possibly for Woman Police officers, interesting info. Thanks for it.

    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I think I would like to start with this one as it is such an oddity I mulled over this Mk II for some time and finally broke down and put out the cash as I find it such a curious lid
    The markings on the shell are obliterated by paint and rust and I refuse to take out the liner retention bolt as I do not want to damage the paint to look for the manufacturers mark on the reverse side of the vertical band so it is a wee bit of a Mystery lid the camo is defiantly eye brow lifting.

    This Mk II is a 1941 G.S.W. Mk I with a 41 dated size 7 VMC liner it is sporting a first variant two tone cam net and IMO shows some real nice age and patina on the shell.
    There is ghost image on the paint were the camo net has been resting on it for a long time when I carefully removed the net to take pictures the net retained its shape (memory).

    I just recently added this police issued Mk II the shell is a 1940 dated C.L./C.
    It was a bit of a Gamble as there was no mention of the date on the liner so it is a bit of a mystery helmet till It gets here. ( I do like surprises )
    These Mk II's were issued to the police near the begging of the second world war and used through out the war years I know police Mk II helmets are a fairly common civic lid in the UK but I very rarely see the Canadian variant in the market place for sale.

    When I get a new Mk.II lid, I carefully take the liner out, see if there is anymore markings.

    Sometime they have year and size stamps on the hidden side, and sometimes with painted, or engraved C Broad Arrow on them.

    Cheers!
