    Hey guys,ive found in NZ a BMB marked 1942 dated british para helmet...i think...the chinstrap is the later canvas type and the paint is average with a lighter sort of OD/khaki on the inside and a darker almost black on the outside...i went to try and get pics today but the bloke wasnt there..will try again on saturday but what i wanted to know was if it is the real deal then is 600 a fair price..i realise pics will be the maker/breaker but thought id get a rough idea,cheers Sean

    An WW2 British para helmet (HSAT)that has been converted post war most likely by the Australians with canvas chin straps. Wartime Mk1 HSAT would have had leather chin straps.

    These helmets were not that collectable a few years ago, but now they are starting too, & are collected as what they are.
    So at a guess 350-600.

    Hi Torch a nice post war converted Fiber Rim that I would happily display in my own collection as these were modified by the MOD for continued service they still hold historical value and are an interesting variation of an already iconic AB helmet it would be interesting to know it's service history.

    Regards Mark
    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 !!!!!
