  1. To be fair that's partly why I left it alone and I wouldn't even consider painting it. I will see if it's possible to replace the lace in the liner, but will leave it alone if it looks like being a problem. Thanks for the advice guys.
  2. Thanks, I've tried to look after it all the digs you can see on the top have been there since I got it. I need to spend some time on the liner see if I can restore it a bit. The lace rotted and snapped and I haven't managed to get it out and replace it yet I didn't want to damage it in the process. The paint has worn off the rim but otherwise it's not too bad.
  3. Thanks Kenny my pleasure, I've had it since I was a kid in the 80's (I seem to remember making my dad pay £6 for it!!!) so its really good to find out some of its history. The liner was original in much better condition, but unfortunately it's been tucked away in cupboards a lot for a long time so its no longer as good as it was. I'm assuming that the G 11 above the makers mark is the batch number.
  4. Hi Everyone, I stumbled on this thread as I was looking for the makers marks of the helmet I've owned for years. I needed the information so I could send it to school with my daughter for their WW2 topic. Thanks to you guys I now know who made it Helmet: Harrison Bros & Howson Liner: Barrow Hepburn & Gale Ltd (not in great condition sadly) Both stamped 1939 (although helmet marking is difficult to read)
