    RCEME Mk.II

    Post by mk1rceme on Fri Nov 27, 2009 10:52 pm

    I recently acquired this helmet through a long time friend who's Grandfather served in the same RCEME Workshop as my Grandfather for a while. Me and my friend used to play war with this very same helmet when we were young. My mother has a picture somewhere of us wearing it while playing in the seventies...still haven't found the damn picture since it is somewhere in about a thousand or more loose family photos my mother has in about ten different plastic containers. Someday either me or her will find it.

    Just to clarify, my Grandfather and Mr. Bagnall(the one who owned this helmet) both served with 1 Division, 3 Brigade Infantry Workshops. Mr Bagnall was sent home due to facial injuries sustained in Italy in 1944...not sure how he got the helmet home. The Bagnall's have been long-time family friends.
