Ww2 Canadian Army Unit Marked Brodie Mkii Helmet Early Mki* Liner 1st Division ? For Sale
Up for offer is an original World War Two Canadian Army MKII Brodie Helmet with an early MKI* liner in size 6 3/4. The helmet is painted with original insignia for what the seller believes to be a unit of the Canadian First Army. The shell is of British origin, and was manufactured by Joseph Sankey & Sons in 1939. The liner was manufactured by J. Compton Sons & Webb Ltd. in 1939. The helmet has that "been there" look, but isn't trashed or dented. A decent amount of scuffs and scratches are present. The interior of the shell retains the glossy green finish, while the exterior has the later war course greenish-brown finish. Both insignia are done in a gloss/semi-gloss red-the head of the liner retention screw was also painted red, but most has chipped off. The liner size is written largely in chalk on the exterior. The former owner's name is hand printed on the exterior also, it looks to be "P. Morgan." The chin strap is unbroken and still retains it's elasticity. The liner fabric does have some stiffness. As can be seen in the pics there is white anti-fungal spray/powder residue on the suspension, which will clean up. Please take a look at the other '39 dated Brodie the seller has listed this week.
