Article about: In Ken N.'s book he shows his ET74 helmet that has been welded back together. Perhaps this was a wartime modification? Either way, good luck on the restoration! Can you read the factory stam

ID:	270284As you can see the seem in the leather which should line up with the rear rivet is way off line so i had to pull it apart and reposition it...."not a lot of fun" and then i aged it a little.

    Hey Phil I see you had fun trying to put the liner in I was tightening up the pins and washers in my M42 and I thought it was a lot like sticking your fingers in a mouse trap I dont know how many time I pinched my fingers and swore blue blazes at that helmet .Hell of a job Phil looks good on you.

    Regards Mark K
    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 !!!!!
