    Default Unknown BV MK2 Helmet?

    Hi everyone,

    Hope you're all good! Picked this helmet up recently, after doing some research I've still found nothing about it. Shell is dated 1941 and marked CLC (which I believe is Canadian?). I cant see a date on the liner and the chin strap is one ive not seen before.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hi Vickey I can confirm if the shell is marked C.L./C. it is indeed Canadian and was produced by the Canadian Motorlamp Company IMO the liner is not Canadian produced though.

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

    Cheers for the info! I had a feeling the liner wasn't original to the helmet. Any ideas of the insignia?

    Hi Vickey no sorry Aaron and or Jerry would probably be of more help as IMO it is British and not Canadian.

    It's been painted in Dutch post war colours, probably for their civil defence. They used a lot of British & Canadian helmets post war, until the late 50's when they started producing their own.
    So chin strap & liner may be Dutch made.

    A mate had one of these years ago and was told it was Dutch postwar civil defence but what I've never understood is that the Dutch CD is BB or Bescherming Bevolking.

    This is just a thought but could it be a branch of the Dutch CD?

    My Dutch language skills are pretty much non existent but I wonder if it could be Vrijwilligers, as in some kind of Voluntary Civil Defence.

    Or even Brandweer Vrijwilligers?
