A strange MK2

5 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

 

I need some info about that strange one, found in Northern France. I believe it has never been issued and also never been dismantled. The helmet shell is british made by F & L and dated 1941. The lining is dated 1942 and canadian made. The chinstrap has a broad arrow stamp.

I have presented this helmet on a french collector web site and the answers I received were that the canadian received british made shells during the war years, so nothing was strange with that helmet.

What do you, MK2 pro think about it?

 

Regards

 

JC

A lot of wartime items have this shade of purple or blue inkstamps on them, especially clothing labels.  red is also seen.
