  1. Help identifying british helmet?

    Thanks r&s - have you seen a riveted liner before
  2. Helmet,Steel,Mk3.

    Thanks very much tinlid, ive just never seen a riveted liner before. Ive attached a pic of the rim join and im going to give it a brush down later. I doubt very much there is, but if any stampings are there will it be inder the seam or opposite side? thanks again, shaun
  3. Helmet,Steel,Mk3.

    Hi chaps, sorry i feel a bit embarrassed for poluting this thread of lovely helmets with a rusty old relic, but here goes! can any body shed any light on this, just found it today... does it look like a mkiii? The remains of the liner are actually riveted on, has any body seen this before? thank you in advance, shaun
  4. Hello, friends, can anybody confirm the model of this helmet please? I have just picked it up today, very rusty and in need of some tlc, but hoping its a mkiii.. remains of liner look to be riveted on, which ive not seen before? Any information very much appreciated. Many thanks, shaun
  5. Thanks again Jerry, thats really interesting. No markings on it unfortunatly, but does seem quite thick layer of paint!
  6. Thanks very much peterpaul... have you seen the second helmet, i just wondered if you could advise on the paint, theatre maybe? Sorry, it just seems quite glossy to me, much more brown-like...! thankyou again for your comments
  7. Thanks so much jerry... sorry to pester, but are you able to id this one at all please? this has a much smoother finish, despite the pitting, and is more browner colour. Liner is c s & w ltd, 1939. An idea of the theatre? many thanks again
  8. Ah, thank you jerry, much appreciated. do you think the colour is right for a 43 army helmet? Thanks again
  9. Thank you very much for this information gents, apologies for the late reply. i re visited this helmet last weekend, and was actually able to find some new markings, i belive they are S b 4 1 and BM 43. Has anybody seen these before? I hope that you can make it out from the pictures...
  10. ...also, does anybody have any recommendations for any products that can be rubbed onto these ww2 liners to stop them going brittle and flakey?
  11. Fantastic, thank you very much chaps
  12. Thank you for this graham - on closer inspection i can make out the fabric marks on the black areas! There only appears to be one coat of paint, but i wasnt sure if original texture was not only aplied to the exterior? thank you again
  13. Hello all, Would it be possible for somebody to help me ID a British helmet please? I picked this up at the weekend as I liked the paint finish but I am unsure as to whether or not it is WW2? The green finish is textured inside and out, but the markings are faint - possibly SS 41? Does anybody know what the black stripes are too? The liner has seen better days but stamped CCL 1941 and I think the strap a mkIII? Any help very much appreciated. Thank you, Shaun
