    Another fine example James I really like the wear,crackling and crazing to the paint on this example and it looks quite good displayed on the shelf .

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    Hi James, in 1941 or 1942 due to experiences at bomb damaged area's, it soon became apparent that more recognition was needed on helmets.Hence markings to front & back.

    James how comes you never run out of room for your display purposes?everytime you show various items or area's of topic there always seems to be enough room,do you alternate stuff around?i've got a couple of boxes in the loft of bits and pieces,I need a man-cave..........
    thanks jake i just seem to have a knack of making the most of the limited space i have but im in the process of slightly modifying the existing shelving hence the tatty unfinished look to the edges etc i will get there in time ,my reason was that the lids were just lying flat on the shelves so only half was visible ,now with the extra height i can view the liner and chinstraps too ,well when the odd gassie isnt obscuring the view i have recently noticed a very similar setup on a warden helmet on another forum members recent post too cheers james
