Brodie Helmet

On a dealers web site there is a WW1 British helmet listed as a Mk11 1918 pattern helmet. Was there such a beast? My understanding was that the last WW1 modification of the basic helmet was the type with the rubber doughnut sanctioned June 1917?

Have you got a link to the site?

Probably they have just got it wrong. I thought the term MKII did not come into use until WWII.

It's a WW1 example with doughnut. Newly listed on John Carlins site. Nice helmet, wrong nomenclature? Nice price too.

Nothing wrong with the helmet, but the designation is fantasy. No need to pay this much for one.

Indeed - they have a couple listed, and whilst the condition of both is beautiful the prices are at least double what you'd expect to reasonably pay for similar examples, and they do crop up enough on Ebay and the like to make waiting a little worthwhile.
