BACKGROUND: The standard British Infantry helmet, as used throughout World War II, being a modification of the Mk. I helmet introduced in April of 1916 and used during the First World War. Production of the MK II helmet began in 1938 and the first units were delivered to the armed forces in 1939. The helmet retained its predecessorís shape but improved the steel, liner and chin strap.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Constructed entirely of non-magnetic steel, the basin-shaped helmet, with an all-around visor, retains most of its original camo over paint. A separate rim is crimped along its visor, which exhibits the expected edge wear, and rivets may be seen where the visor meets the crown above each ear. Stamped in the metal under the rim is "HBH" (Harrison Bros. & Howson) and a 1940 date. Nice complete 1939 dated "VERO" liner and chinstrap. Size marked 7. Nice helmet.
