    Default Relic British Brodie helmet

    Hi,
    As i like to collect relic helmets i thought i would show this relic brodie that arrived today, i bought it from a guy in France.
    As i havent seen alot of battlefield damaged brodies i thought i would grab this one. It,s in good condition for a relic from W.W.2,
    but i have no history on it.

    Hi Zero,
    I see what you are saying about no rust, i did start to de-shale it
    with wire wool but thought better of it. but i dont see how the bullet hole is strang ?.

    hole metal fracture is not rusty as the rest of the helm .she was made late. see the hole for liner rivet.

    Cool lid! I would hesitate to call it a Brodie though. Those were a brand name of WWI manufactured helmets. Looks like a relic MkII to me

    I have my doubts about that bullet hole too, it looks like the back of one of the targets down at the local firing ranges that were shot at only a few days ago. What size is the hole? (approx)

    Thanks

    Hi danny,
    I have just compared some rounds with the hole and the only one that goes through is a .45 cal. I can see what you are saying it does look clean but i cleaned the hole with wirewool, bit stupid really then thought better of it so left it. But you never know, i have a german relic 40 Patt, with a .32 cal holes in it in two places and that is a small hand gun.

    I agree .. the lugs are MK11 no doubt about it so im afraid it isnt an old Brodie
