    I don't think there is anything which can be done to stop the fur shedding? Just keep it is a stable envoiroment. (No joke intended! )

    Cheers, Ade.
    I come here for the depth of knowledge you guys have and for the fantastic pics

    ......but the tongue in cheek humour is pretty good too.

    Good 1, Adrian!

    The first helmet, a MkII, is a Canadian one, I'm sure. It of course is a clone of the British WW2 helmet. You can be positive by identifying the markings. Could be something like: GSW or CL/C.

    Nice helmets!
    Cheers,

    The w on the third helmet probably stands for warden, part of Britains ARP (air raid precautions) organisation. Some members were employed full time by the local area authorities and equipped with a proper uniform with a black painted helmet of this type, others volunteered to do their bit and this helmet was probably that of a ww1 soldier wearing it for his or hers warden duties.

    hello !

    greets mike ,lir2
    The Mk I (3rd helmet) is the British standard trench helmet of WW I. It's missing some liner parts. The shape is a little different to it's follower Mk II, more circular.
    The stencil could be an air raid warden's of WW II. These helmets often were re-issued for CD and other "third line" purposes after 1939.

    Fur on German rucksacks - Affe - can also be from cattle.

    I know that this is an old thread, but I thought I'd give you some information on the gas mask. Its a 1950s US Army M2-10A1-6 Lightweight Optical Mask, its designed to be used with binoculars and sight units. Fitted to your mask is a water proofing kit which blocks the inlet valve on the filter and the hose to keep the inside of the filter dry. It apears to be complete as the anti dimming kit is still in there too. Very nice finds.
