A good condition, which most of them are as only about the first 300,000 were actually used by the Union Defence Force.

The other 1,200,000 which were produced up until April 1945 were supplied to the Eastern group supply council.

 The liner is dated 1942 & like all liners made by Jager Rand.

A fine example.  I used to have one but it had a british liner in it, I was never sure if it was a period switch or more likely done post war.

Yes, I think there would always be that little bit of doubt. Can you remember what date the liner was?

 

 

1943 which fitted with it being used in Italy perhaps?  It looked OK, but the screw had obviously been changed so never certain.  no matter now as its long gone.

Here's one that actually might have seen service during WW2, in it's original  Union Defence Force green paint.

It has the early clipped Mk2 chin strap lugs,held in place with a rivet, & not I believe the later split rivet type. The liner is dated 1940.

Jager Rand were the only ones put in from factory. 

You then see quite a few with WW2 dated British liners, when these were done I don't know, late war or post?

Post war refurbishment of these S.A. helmets were done by Greece, Israel, Norway & a few others.

Jager Rand liners are the ones you want for an original S.A. Mk2 untouched. They will be dated 1940-45, although I have only seen 1940-43 dated ones.

Here is an Israeli refurb'.
