Hello gents, I'd like to show off my British Mk IV helmet. The shell is stamped Mk IV and dated 1952. It has a late 1960s / early 1970s Mk V liner. The chin strap is marked 1973. It has a 1960s / 70s net cover. Typical of the helmets used by the British army during the Cold War period, from West Germany to Northern Ireland to the Falklands. It has been called the 'turtle' helmet, due to its shape. The British army issued Basic Battle Skills manual is dated 1981. Part of my small Cold War collection.
