  1. Hi there guys, my first post... I collect all kinds of military helmets and have seen this for sale... I have never seen a Brodie with this type of liner attachment, and am thinking about purchasing it, however as the style is unknown to me, I don't know what its worth... I don't even know if it's WWI or WWII, neither does the bloke who's selling it... I would greatly appreciate any help in identifying the helmet please. Many thanks in advance guys, Coldfusion.
  2. I've been trying to figure out what helmet this is for months with no luck finding anything. I've talked to a few collectors and they had no idea. I've now resorted to the internet. There are no stamps anywhere, just remanence of a sticker on the inside. The clip on the chin strap says "anchor bran" with an anchor stamp. I've attached some pictures, hopefully this is enough information. Thank you!
  3. Do the white circles on this helmet mean anything like this or did they perhaps not get round to putting red crosses on it?
  4. Hi all this is my first post. I found my step-father’s father’s and grand-father’s british brodie helmets from ww1 and ww2. I need help identifying some markings on the second world war brodie. I am pretty sure the ww2 helmet was worn protecting/ patrolling the British Houses of Parliament after he was injured in standard service. Here is an image ( sorry for bad quality) There are 3 letters painted on the front i think it could be either one of these combinations: DPH DPB OPB OPH NPH NPB I have looked on a couple brodie specialist websites and can’t find anything. Sorry for the long post and thanks for any info you can give me, Tom
  5. I dug out my old Brodie purchased 20 years ago in Northern France as a reconditioned WW1 item. Having looked at the forums here I am not sure when it is from, no stamps or plates that I can find. Any advice or pointers much appreciated, Bob.
  6. Hi 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.
  7. Hey guys, I am new to both the forum scene and the collectors scene so please forgive me if this is a repeated question on one of the forums I have not read. I have always been a history nut and have always been interested in WWI particularly. I was browsing an antique store in Radium BC and I stumbled upon this gem. The label said that it was a Brodie, WWI helmet and I snapped at the opportunity of purchasing my first relic. Now I know the general details about this helmet for example. it has a soldiers name on the inside of the helmet, and it is labelled 13th battalion referring to the "Canadian Highlanders" but thats really the full extent of my knowledge about this piece. Would anyone be so kind as to tell me about the Canadian Highlanders, and about the helmet itself as well as dates it was used and what the symbols could mean like "FKS 31". And could anyone speculate as too why the strap might be broken and the inner parts missing? could it have been ripped out in battle? would that be commonplace? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time guys! Regards, A. Smith

    Hi All, I hail from Ontario Canada and I have recently begun the segue from military reenactor to collector. After discovering your site and the plethora of info on it, I had to join. The other day I came across what I believe is an early wwi helmet. At $10 CAD I snapped it up without a second thought. I believe it's made by Harrison Bros and Howson Ltd since it's marked HH 050. Cheers for any further info! -Neil H Ps. I'll toss up some pics under the Brodie section once I figure out how!
