    Very nice! I have yet to find a rimless...let alone Bn. marked. All plain-janes in my collection.

    Curious, is there a name in the helmet? My great uncle George Davies fought with the 78th all through the war.

    Cheers,

    whats the inside like Ed and what markings may I ask, does the sand finish go inside too or a top coat over green.  What date would you place this, and if again it needs some attention elsewhere for a while let us know lol

    was looking at something else and came across this painting, I thought it was interesting for the detail of the helmet and also the shoulder flash, made me think of your helmet Ed

    Awesome helmet Ed, super hard to find and in great condition, would love to see the liner. Thanks for showing, Keith
