I recently picked up my first WW1 Canadian MK1 Brodie, named to Edward Charles Patey. He enlisted with the 169th battalion in Toronto, Canada, Feb. 17, 1916, served as a private with the 1st infantry brigade, 3rd battalion and was shell wounded in the right leg on August 23, 1917 and later sustained a gunshot wound on September 3, 1918. He survived the war and died many years later on Jan. 2, 1973 in Mississauga, Ontario.
The helmet is in decent shape although missing a chinstrap as most are but the liner is in really good shape. The painted name shows as white in the photos but is actually silver in colour when in hand. There is no doughnut ring as this helmet was issued in 1916 prior to the intro of the rubber donut insert.
Always looking to add more Cdn WW1 brodies. Hope you like this one. Cheers.
