The helmet looks like the 1916 variant, has it got any maker stamp marks, I must admit I've never seen the Brodie carrying case before an excellent

find Kenny. :thumbsup:

Thanks Colin, it does have stamps but from memory they were very faint, I'll double check when I'm back in the shop on Tuesday.

Hi Colin,

here are the stamps, they are very faint but looks like

either an E or an F with a line underneath and the numbers 588  ?

Looks like an early made helmet by T. Firth & Sons of Sheffield 1916 -1918 who also used a letter "F" mark, the 588  being the batch number.
