    Canadian MK-II Helmet

    Post by Edward T. on Fri Jan 07, 2011 10:07 pm

    For some reason Canadian WWII helmets seem to be scarce, at least around here. Very Happy

    This particular helmet was made by the Canadian Motor Lamp Company and is marked CL/C 1942 96 on the brim.

    The liner is marked V.M.C (Viceroy Manufacturing Company), II, and the date of 1942.

    Unfortunately, the top retaining nut looks to be replaced and the helmet is missing its chinstrap. Hopefully I can find replacements in the future. Smile

    The chinstrap should be easy to locate but those panhead securing bolts are very tough to find. I usually buy up complete DP&H helmets and use the parts from them for the MkII's that need anything. DP&H helmets are getting scarce as well...and some people who are selling them are asking extreme prices for them now.

    Regardless, you have a nice lid there.
