    Thanks for posting for me Mike.I still can't figure out the posting schematic for some reason.
    Some recent buys,finds.As you can see,I collect mostly NNSH.

    Top #1,#2,#3-The helmet of NNSH "Original" and D-Day Veteran Lt. Harry Ripley
    #4-Trenchart and leather NNSH wallet
    #5-Glass memorial plaque
    #6-Grouping with painting from Dieppe Calgary Tank Veteran Bill Wigley,NNSH officers picture,belt and Brodie with Veteran sigs I've interviewed. I have many of these helmets with Vets sigs.
    #7- Grouping with jerkin(unknown),memorial plaque,brass NNSH crest,NNSH officers hat badge and enlisted hat badge,dug at the Debert,NS firing range.Lastly, NNSH Officer Lt. Harry Ripley Brodie (with Scottish thistle) and Brodie#2 done up in RCAMC colours. I've seen a pic of a medic in Italy wearing the same type of med paintwork. Have a gooder everyone.

    Some nice looking items there. I know it's semantics, but I have to say that there are no Brodie helmets in these photos. Yes, the MkII looks similar on the outside to a Brodie helmet but they are very different in every other regard. I only mention this because I think it's important for collectors to use the proper descriptions of their items on a forum such as this. This is a place to visit in order to learn and share facts about these items and not a place to perpetuate misinformation... I hope you understand.

    Proper Nomenclature

    Steve makes a very good point. A Mk II Helmet is not a Brodie.

    There is a thread somewhere explaining how to post photos. In a nut shell, click on the add photos icon, then click on browse and select your photo, click open, then click host it. At this point you will have three options of links depending on if you want to display a thumbnail or the whole photo in your post. Select the option of choice, copy the link and paste it in your post.
