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

    British Mk. II "Civilian"

    This is my first British Mk. II, from Canada.

    It has a very smooth light brown paint finish.

    Rim Stamps (need advice): Mk I 1941 No. 4

    Liner is not dated but only size "7 1/2" stamped on. I wonder if this is a post war CDN liner??

    Also with a mint CDN chin strap, a put together piece.

    British Mk. II "Combat"

    My one and only British Mk. II combat helmet with net and camo scrims.

    Very heavily painted in dark green, with a dark brown net.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't find the stampings on this helmet.

    None the less, it got a very nice character.

    Liner stampings: 7 FFL (Fisher & Ludlow Ltd) Mk 2 1945

    CDN Early Tankers' Helmet

    Probably my favorite CDN helmet. Got this helmet from an antique store in Canada.

    The condition is just beautiful ! I don't think I will find another one like this.

    Manufactured by Safety Supply Company, Toronto. There are two C-Broad Arrow stamps - one Inside and one on the chin strap.

    Size: 7 1/4

    British Mk. III "Turtle Helmet"

    My only Mk. III helmet in my collection. Got it from Canada.

    At first I was very surprised to see this helmet because of the Mk. III shell and Mk. III liner are together.

    So there might be a chance of this being a D-Day Mk. III.

    Shell is dark brown with little bit of green on, the net is a two-toned CDN version.

    Shell manufacturer and dat not visible.

    Liner is manufactured by FFL II. Dated 1943. Size: 7 1/2

    Chinstarp is early Mk.III type.
