A nice original wartime tommy helmet. The shell is in good order and retains much original dark brown painted finish but does show some wear and loss to the finish but all blends in with age and looks nice, the inside of the shell again retains its original finish along with minor surface rust spotting which should clean up well, it is maker marked and dated 1941. The liner is in good order but pretty dirty and the oil cloth shows minor surface cracking but mostly soft and supple. It is a size 6 ¾ and dated 1938. The original chinstrap is good but shows some rust staining to the material from the springs.
