    Looks OK to me but it all depends what you want/need to know about it Hans. Your best bet is to wait until somebody by TinLid picks up on your posting.

    I'd say the leather sweatband looks to be 19 BMB "X"3
    .. Which it should do, ... it would be unusual to see, if not slightly worrying to see a web strap with a 42 dated liner.

    Looks ok in my opinion, BMB stands for "Briggs Motor Bodies".

    Looks like a nice 1944 dated Mk2 HSAT, but as with most British helmets has been used post war & as such been repainted.
    Original dark brown paint is inside.

    42's into 43's were the fibre rim (42 dated), and the leather strap (4 hole) (42-43 dated) liners.
    A 42 web strap would not fit in the timeline with the stages of development / production of the helmet.
