I'd like to share this British or Canadian mk.II helmet.
I picked it up when I was 10 years old at a 'junk market' for 400 frank. (that's about 10€ or 15$).
The helmet is marked G&S 1942. The date stamp is faded on the liner but is still visible on the helmet itself (though not in the pictures because of the helmet texture).
I have some questions and maybe you could help me out:
- is the helmet british or canadian?
- the marking on the left side of the helmet, anyone recognises it? Maybe it's more of a personal marking, like a name? "Jaid__" or "Jald_ _"?
- Any remarks on the texture and color? is it common to hav this kind of texture?
that's all for now, enjoy the pics and best regards,
(more pictures coming soon)
