    Default R.A. Mk2 Helmet w/original net

    I've had this a few weeks now.1939 dated mk2 lid, maker is J.SS(joseph Sankey and sons)with Royal artillery flash and its original net.This net has never been off and is contemporary to the lid.Its like the net is 'stuck' to the top of helmet..The liner is also 1939 dated and made by Vero.
    The helmet is covered in a thick layer of olive green paint with a heavy sort of aggregate added.
    And to make it that more sweeter it cost me the grand total of 3.50!!

    Haha!Thanks but no thanks!It was an early morning carboot sale find.Happy days.Strange thing is just before i found this i'd just bought a 50's turtle helmet for 12!!
    I originally thought the net was US but ive since learnt their nets of this style didnt appear until late in the war...So its an early british net then?
    And just now ive found its named!

    Hello, how are you mate?Very nice Helmet. and the price is just awesome. not even the shipping price i pay for one like this to Mexico City (20-30 Pounds) hahaha. I wish i could find here in the City cool cheapest items in Attics, Barns or Estate sales like you guys in the USA, Canada and Europe .

    Cheers.
