MKI Brodie WWI named semi relic

3 posts in this topic

A pick up from the US for a good price, WWI Brodie MKI with owners name on the chinstrap (I forgot to photograph it so I will have to add it another time) A O Hendrikson, so I assume he was a US great war veteran who took his lid home with him.  Many Americans were issued with the British made MKI, either because supplies of the US made version were not available or just because the British made examples were to hand.

 

Maker mark appears to be /D/ for Dixons who were one of the earlier makers of MKI's so perhaps it was a refurb as many were upgraded during the war with new liners etc....certainly this appears to have the second pattern liner issued from 1917 on as it has the rubber ring in the crown under the felt.
