German helmet post home label

Hi all

My latest purchase is a german camo helmet complete with postage home label, as you can see in the photos the writing is worn, I would love to find out the sender and wondered if between us we could work it out.

 

The label reads..... MRS BRIGHT......SON so a surname that starts with bright and ends in son?

Under the surname a place ? starts with a S, 2nd letter possibly a H

Inc.... Bright (and) Son, Stockport?

Well done, that fits perfectly, thanks for the fast and brilliant response.

 

I don't suppose you know much of this company do you?

I also guess that puts a end as to whom sent this item, but never the less a great interesting item

It could read something else - just my interpretation of the writing.

 

Someone else may know more. Good luck.

I read Messers Bright and Son just before you replied.

 

stockport works... but it might be wrong.

 

Probably irrelevant, but there is a bright and sons solictors in Maldon Essex that were around at the time.

Thanks for your reply

 

I think we can say for certain that its been sent to the company "bright and son" but that's probably all we will ever know, I will research more but sometimes you just hit a brick wall, always worth a try

I don't think you will find that Maldon's F.H. Bright, solicitors (aka Beaumont and Bright) were referred to as Bright and Son during WW1.
