Arrived today, early war with textured paint over the original flat khaki green, only on the outside which is correct for the early war period.

 

Helmet is maker and size marked, dated 1940 on both shell and liner.  Shell maker is Joseph Sankey & Sons and the liner is by Teddy Toy Company.

 

Also has the owners army number and named painted under the brim, for a member of the Royal Welch Fusiliers.  Rare to see one named to a combat unit.

Textured finnish on army issue helmets is a must.

The smooth factory finnishes in the same colour are all home front. Nice helmet jerry :thumbup:

It has a textured finish on the exterior and smooth inside which is correct for the earlier period.

I missed this one Jerry a very very nice helmet indeed sir I love the wear and patina to the exterior of the shell it has that look about it that I find overwhelmingly attractive in a helmet (The been there done that look ).

Nicely named and numbered to boot I see the makers mark and date is slightly askew and hidden behind the brim and possibly even clipped I would be very happy to display it in my collection
