    Default New helmet: HADRIANS Wall CAMO MKII Northumbrian Ulster Territorial Service

    Hello all, just got this helmet in the mail, arrived direct from Essex today.

    A smashing example of a MkII helmet badged to the Royal Engineers, in Hadrians wall camo, and it in fact has what I believe to be -THE- Kings shilling!



    Quite certain of its authenticity, as it doesn't smell of paint. Belonged to a member of the Northumbrian Ulster Territorial Service, it's a rare and remarkable helmet, and while I had never heard of the Northumbrian Ulster Territorial Service, this is no stretch due to the loss of war records etc.

    Cheers

    Certainly was, but i feel it has a special place in my collection. He posted it once the Western union payment cleared, which took a few days as it had to be routed though a Nigerian banking firm...??? I thought it odd but i have the helmet and it's a keeper!

    Well quality costs !

    Doubt I will ever get one that nice. Still, I live in hope. Ebay never has original helmets like this . Most of them are fake.

    Just out of curiosity, why is there paper and a coin taped to the helmet? The badge is taped on too?

    This is a joke thread. See the E Bay new money maker thread.

    LOL.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Knowing how creative Goldie is, i'm sure he'll churn up one that's similar or maybe better
    PS now he's even giving away free motorbikes and jeeps with his helmets:
    PPS any comments on the signed para helmet he's got listed (regarding authenticity I mean?)
