Mk II British airborne helmet also known as HSAT "Helmet Steel Airborne Troops". It is fitted with a early type stitched leather chinstrap and original camouflage net. Exterior light green paint is in very good condition. The rubber band around the rim is characteristic of these early paratrooper helmets. The liner is complete in all its parts, showing wears to the leather. The liner pads are made of yellow sorbo rubber. A top pad was glued to the crown of the helmet. Maker markings are “BMB” - 6 ¾, dated 1942. This is a top shelf item for an advanced helmets collector.
