    Hi Guys,
    I picked up this helmet a couple of weeks ago and have just got around to looking at it closely.

    It is marked HS for Hadfields Steel but has no heat/ batch number.
    From what I read here Brodie helmets, Heat numbers/Batch numbers - Other Equipment - Great War Forum it could be made between November 1915 and September 1916 as it does not show the Heat number.

    Does this sound about right ?

    Colouring shows Olive Green under a sand colour paint.

    A nice lid. Not sure when the rimmed mkI was introduced though I think some early rimless examples were retrofitted with the rims.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    As requested a picture of the Bale and I also added a picture of the untidy joint in the rim.
