    What makes this one ineresting from the Winnipeg Grenidiers is there is one decal over another. I didn't know these were just for use in Canada...thanks for the info...

    Hi all, here is a recent "barn find" buy. The shell is British, the liner is 1942 Canadian. There is a name inside which I'm still looking at.

    My latest purchase.
    A nice CL/C 1942 with RCCoS flash.
    Only the blue part is in good condition.
    The white part is sadly for the most gone.
    But still, original as found.

    The helmet with the Seaforth decal (transfer) on it is great and rare. I suspect it is Imperial Seaforths though. I do have two original NOS Gale & Polden decals / transfers for the Seaforths (ex-Pat Smith > Jack Gentle collection) One has the L and coronet, so is officer pattern. Other one is OR like the one shown. That one is 2-1/4" wide. These were bought in Aldershot in WWII by Pat Smith. He also bought vehicle formation sign decals/transfers which I bought from him and still have.

    In 1972 I started and ran the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada Museum and Archives while serving as a junior officer with the regiment. I was Curator for 15 years (three separate "tours") and finally retired from it July 2011 after it had attained Canadfian Forces Museum status. I never saw this decal connected with the Canadian Seaforths. I found two early WWII helmets both named to Seaforth of C COs (Leslie and Stevenson as I recall) - one with painted stag's head and other with decal. One I found in QM stores - we were still using WWII helmets then. So I got an ordinary helmet and traded it for the marked one from the QM for the museum. By the 1970s the Seaforth Association reproduced the wartime helmet decal as a souvenir for members and it is the OR's badge on a tartan patch. I have one on the windshield of my 1944 Willys MB jeep and an unused one in my decals collection.

    A member of this forum has the bulk of the Pat Smith > Colin Stevens > Jack Gentle helmet decals.

    Hmmmm....there may have been three fellows who sat together as this was being done, as I have 2 NNSH MKII's as well as a MKIII but without the thistle.It has the 3rd div patch with numerical 9th brigade on the patch. Really cool...
    Love to post 'em, but I can't seem to figure out the pic thing yet.

    Hello gentlemen,

    I love the pictures of the helmets and decals. Would love to post a couple of my own but I am in the same boat as Camera Guy.

    Clive your web page regarding this subject is great and has come in handy many times.

    I would love to pick up a early WWII 48th Highlanders stencilled marked helmet if any one out there has one for sale??

    That's an interesting helmet. Would that have been an official/standard addition to the helmet for instructors?

    Looks like the AI figured he needed to have his distinguishing badge painted on his helmet. I hope the large dent on top is not an indication of how well liked he was.
