Military issue or home use? (Brodie helmet)

Recommended Posts


Can anyone help? Recently acquired. To me it looks like a light grey or blue colour, others claim it's green. Joseph Sankey & Sons 1939 and matching liner. Also has "K8" stamped which I presume is a batch number? Would this helmet been issued to the forces? If so, army, naval or air force. Thanks for any information in advance.

At that date Army helmets were rough textured on the exterior and smooth on the inside.  I can't tell from the pics what the outside is like.  Posting bigger individual pics would have helped, but if you have it in the hand you should be able to see.  If it is not textured on the outside it is home front, as most helmets of that date were, the Army mostly used the refurbished WWI helmets.
