British and Commonwealth WW1 and WW2 Brodie Helmets and Maker Stamps

Recommended Posts

This has been given a coating of red lead paint to prevent corrosion, obviously an amateur and dilettant attempt.

Possibly Fritz, I have seen all kinds of paint jobs, both ameteur and professional. These helmets were used for all kinds of purposes after the war, light shades, etc.
