The Mk1 Helmet, Steel, Royal Armoured Corps (HSRAC) was first produced in 1942. It had an fibre rim at first, then when production techniques improved they did away with the fibre rim & replaced it with an stainless steel rim. Before this helmets for armoured troops would have been an fibre type one.

This one has been repainted at some time in RAC black, whether during the war or after I don't know, but I have this this a few times.

Still an Mk1 HSRAC but with the stainless steel rim, early war probably 42-43 khaki green textured paint.

The Mk1 & Mk2 HSRAC were all made by BMB as far as we know.

The more commonly dark brown painted HSRAC, the BMB liner is dated 1944.
