    Welcome to the forum.

    Never seen a Brodie style helmet with a Chinese Nationalist flash. Very interesting. (I've seen the german M35 versions.)

    Sure there are others here with more knowledge than myself who can chime in.

    Regards,

    That I would think is a very rare helmet.

    Here are a couple of pictures of MkIIs in use.

    very rare find, so now I know the Chinese Nationalists did use WWII British MKII shells

    I wonder if the Chinese Natiionalist army ever used the US M1917 or M1917A1?
