    Fixed bale, WWII.

    Most of these are swivel bale and have modern chin straps.
    The helmet with the name "SKINNER" is a front seam swivel bale as pictured...

    Just behind the netting of the shot above can be seen the replacement type strap clip.
    There are a broad mix of liners..... !

    Thanks,

    That's a good term - reissued - as I think they range from WWII, into the 80's
    or 90's when the Canadian Army started using Kevlar.

    I don't think the "Magic Marker" pen was invented until the 60's........
