The first one is a Canadian WW2 Mk2 ,the other is a post war Dutch Mk2 clone.
Thx. a lot !
Hi Reibert lets touch on the Canadian example a little more it is a rather nice find actually in May of 1942 Aluminium Goods Ltd. of Toronto Ontario won a tender to manufacturer 66,600 Mk II helmet shells under contract by The Department of Munitions and Supply for the Royal Canadian Air Force with the remainder being issued out to the Canadian Army this was to be there sole contract and they did not produce any other Mk II helmet shells for the duration of the war.
This makes the AG/C Mk II the hardest to find out of all the Canadian manufactured Mk II helmet bodies...

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 !!!!!
Thx., Mark, for this, (very interesting !), informations !
