  1. I did. Thanks a lot man, you've been a huge help.
  2. My apologies for the late response i just got back. Thank you for your reply TinLid, I've had another reply from someone who believes this helmet to in fact be post war Belgian. What makes you think it to be a Greek as opposed to a Belgian refurbishment? And @R&S, obviously thanks for the response as well, but how does its being aluminium help to identify its origins? Did a particular country replace existing cross liners with aluminium ones or were these already standard on mk II's? Your expertise are both much appreciated.
  3. I was hoping someone might help me identify this helmet as I am fairly new to collecting British items. I'm fairly sure this is just a standard mkII infantrymans helmet manufactured 1943. I can see the manufacturer is printed as RO COLU but does anyone have any idea who this is? Additionally while I can tell the leather lining was likely a recent refurbishment by the helmets previous owner it has an old leather chin strap which based on its condition appears pre 50's. This was non-standard on mkII's so does anyone know where this could have come from? I was thinking it could have been one of the ones the ones the Dutch replaced when they bought a bunch at the end of ww2 but I couldn't find a reference picture. Any help is massively appreciated, thanks a lot! http://s345.photobucket.com/user/Samhelm/media/helmet1_zpsolqktgks.jpg.html?filters[user]=145987222&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=2 http://s345.photobucket.com/user/Samhelm/media/helmet2_zpsndjxsuhh.jpg.html?filters[user]=145987222&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=0 http://s345.photobucket.com/user/Samhelm/media/helmet3_zpslnhhawjv.jpg.html?filters[user]=145987222&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=1 http://s345.photobucket.com/user/Samhelm/media/helmet4_zpsadcmsgpb.jpg.html?filters[user]=145987222&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=3
