WORLD WAR ONE BRITISH MARK I “BRODIE” HELMET – NICE EXAMPLE WITH A FULLY LEGIBLE INSPECTION STAMP:  This British Army Mark I “Brodie” Helmet was not only issued to soldiers in the British Army during World War One, but was also issued to US troops as they arrived in Europe in 1917 before the US Army Model 1917 Helmets were produced in sufficient quantities to supply to our troops.   

This helmet is in full form with no dents or other misshaping.  The exterior of the helmet has the correct sawdust textured finish which was applied to reduce the reflection of light from the helmet.  The original OD green paint is fully intact with no corrosion or abrasion damaging the finish.     

The black oilcloth sweat band is fully intact and undamaged.  On the inside of the oilcloth sweat band is stamped with the British Army’s stamp including “BRODIE’S STEEL HELMET”; “WAR OFFICE PATTERN” and the patent information.  The wool felt cover over the crown pad has deteriorated as so many of them have over the years, however the leather suspension strap across the crown is still present and intact, retaining the rubber “doughnut” in place.  The corded netting suspension cap is still present and in full form.  Both chinstrap bales are still present and fully functional.   

Fresh from a very old collection, this World War One British Army Mark I Helmet would be a very nice addition to your World War One collection, and would display correctly with US Army uniforms and equipment of the period.  (0312)  $175
