    I spotted that yesterday.

    BMB 1941 dated homefront helmet with early/pre war MKI liner. All of these I have seen were home front, so at best home guard, though the paint suggests overseas service, so pimped would be my opinion.

    Strange he has not used his trademark blue backdrop.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Jer, you disappoint me, it looks like you don't know what you are doing, your Malta camo is on a home front helmet.
    Or maybe that is the point, you do know what you are doing.

    Back drop is now compromised, as is the reference to Stansted. Hence the relocation to the back garden of his house in an "Essex village". Try as he might, he's an easy spot from now on whatever he tries to hide his efforts of relieving honest folk of their hard earned cash by his selling of counterfeit goods.

    Should anyone feel the need to take this further in a lawful way, here's how to make an official complaint. I've used it successfully in the past, and it works. What's good about it is you don't even need to have purchased the said item(s) for the vendor to be investigated with the possible intention of prosecution by the correct authorities.

    So, for any members who wish to pursue the case against the vendor this thread is all about, there's your answer should you decide to actually follow up on all that's been mooted as a way of getting this guy shut down. Whether you choose to use it is a different matter altogether.

    Regards, Ned.

    Maybe we are wrong in assuming it's a Malta camo,it could be a home front helmet after all, painted to resemble Hadrian's wall maybe?

    I just had a quick look at the link Ned provided but if seems that it's only intended for use to UK citizens, as for the relocation to the back garden ,well the poor guy did say that he is going to get married, so he finally moved out of his daddies house and into his own,I,m sure he'll organize a blue backdrop somewhere soon,

    A new terminology is coined, home front helmet with malta type camo is henceforth known as a Hadrian's Wall camo.

    That's correct, you'll have to rely on one or more of the UK based collectors to make the effort. Don't hold your breath though.......

    Incredible that he has a second (!!!) Hampshire badged helmet, it's a shame he didn't contact the IWM as i'm sure they would have opened a new branch for his incredible collection.
