Remembered Today:

"Mounted pattern" chin strap question.

Hello,

Hopefully someone can help me. A few times over the years I have heard mention of a "mounted pattern" chinstrap for the Great War Brodies.

I have never seen any official documentation or such proving this. Does anyone have any further information or documentation on the matter?

I have recently acquired this wreck of a Brodie (used by a cavalryman in the GW) with an unusual configuration of chin strap, is this just a variation on the standard style?

Below is a picture, it is in a very sorry state, to say the least.

Many thanks in advance.

Perhaps it is merely a repair to the original strap breaking in use, as it appears to have been there a long time.

quite possible, It came "complete" with the remnant's of the liner which I am working on.

Not bad for having been in a shed since the 1970s!

That's a curious helmet. The chinstrap loop retainers and stainless rim edging suggest that it may be a refurbished interwar Mk. I* variant.

Thank you, it also has a camouflage finish to it and some unusual markings in the liner. I will get some better photographs of tit this evening
