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.

Thanks Jerry, I think it's pretty neat, as well.  I'm going to leave it the way it is, but restore the liner.  Any ideas as to where I can find rubberized fabric?

Sadly not.

 

when I first started collecting I thought it was a good idea to restore items, but these days, apart from replacing badges removed from caps I tend to leave items as I find them, as long as it does not involve them decaying or otherwise falling apart.
