  1. Hi Leon Correct! Thanks for the guidance. The helmet is a Sankey and Sons, JSS stamped and there is a 1 above 1939. It is just about visible in the picture. It can be clearly seen under a magnifying glass. Cheers!
  2. Hi Leon I have found a mark of what looks to be j j 1939 near the chin strap lug......the plot thickens?
  3. Hi Leon21 I think it is a name and that the start is a rank L/T looks like it may be Sayer or something similar. There are no markings on the outside of the helmet. I have attached a photo. The liner is the officers type with the Sorbo padding in the dome.
  4. Hi Leon21 Yes I had another go at the other marks. There is what looks to be L/- at the start of the letters AR.......that is all I can make out at the moment.
  5. Hi Leon21 Thank you for your response . The numbers are not painted, they are embossed raised stamped into the rim. I have checked over and over to see if the number is painted but it is in the metal so to speak.....most odd.
  6. Firstly my apologies as I recently posted my question in the helmet section but I think that this is a more appropriate place. I have acquired a WW2 white painted helmet with a most unusual maker stamp of 262726 underneath the brim there are some other marks under the number that I cannot make out. It looks like it starts with L/ ? The liner is stamped JCS&W dated 1939 and has the squiggle mark with the numbers 32 under it. Can anyone help? I have handled many WW2 Brodie’s but never with markings like this one.
