Untouched early dated British MkI helmet with flash to the Royal Corps of Signal. The helmet is in good condition. The shell is Mk1*, refurbished in 1938/1939, so all paint,liner and chin strap used in World War II. The flash is in good condition as the helmet, the shadow of the shadow of the camouflage helmet netting is still visible. What makes this helmet unique is that the WWI, early WWII 'Experimental Cruise Visor' fittings are still in place.
(The British WWII Experimental Cruise Visor steel helmet. Approx 5000 made in early WWII, with a view to protecting eyes from shrapnel splinters, many were lost after Dunkirk, and helmets proved not to be popular due to restricted vision).
Its original liner is also in good used condition and maker marked by 'Vero Ltd.' dated 1939. The oval pad made of leather covered sponge rubber is present.
Nice early helmet with great patina!
