Description
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

You are viewing an original, early WW2 British Mk2 Combat Helmet manufactured by F & L, labelled with the owners name and dated 1940. Such early helmets, presented in original, untouched condition, are becoming harder to find.

The shell is painted dark brown with a good, appropriate paterna of use. It is stamped ‘F & L’ indicating the manufacturers were Fisher & Ludlow Ltd in Birmingham, and dated ‘1940’.

The liner is sized 7 ¼, and also stamped ‘F&L’ with ‘I’ and the date ‘1939’. Under the liner is a canvas label with the name ‘Dr Mc Kerrow’ written by hand in ink with a paterna in keeping with the rest of the helmet. The elasticated webbing chin strap is complete, correct and in good order.

With a 1940 shell and ’39 liner this would be one of the first batches of helmets introduced to replace the original ‘Brodie’ helmet, and with a history that will have likely seen it in use for the duration of WWII.

If you have any questions, please ask before bidding. Thanks for looking, grab yourself a WWII icon!
