Greetings to Masters of All Knowledge regarding Brodie helmets! I recently picked up this helmet in a junk shop and I am curious about it. I believe it is a Mk2 which someone repainted white at some point. I've cleaned it and found the base paint layer is a dark green with a khaki color applied overtop. I have found no numbers/makers stamps and since it is good shape would like to clean and repaint the helmet. It is non-magnetic, and the liner was attached with an aluminum rivet. Any information you may offer is welcome, as well as any advice on what the proper color should be. When I figure out how to attach some pictures, I will.
I have been reading the forums and searching for images about Home Guard helmets and from what I can gather nearly all were painted olive green, over their factory grey Mk II 2variant. Was this just the outer shell or did it depend on the unit, time of issue, manufacturer? I ask as I have seen a 2B mild steel variant with grey dome and and sand textured shell. The helmet's condition and paint wear tallies to me. I am looking forward to your thoughts on this? Oli
