3) A good original wartime issue British infantry mans helmet with original liner. The helmet started out life in the early gloss green which was soon found to be too reflective and an ideal target for snipers. The majority of helmets were over painted in a rough textured khaki mat paintwork such has happened to this one. The rough paintwork is excellent and a lovely khaki/green. It shows some chips and loss which reveal the gloss paintwork underneath. a few areas of loss and slight surface rust to one small area of the rim but nothing serious. The inside rim is its early colour. The chinstrap bails are dated 1939. There is some ancient minor surface rust and dust to the inside shell. The original liner is in place and is good and strong but does show age related dirt wear and surface cracking to the oil cloth. It is a size 7. it is nicely maker marked and dated 1939. a good genuine wartime infantry helmet.
