Canadian Mk I helmet - magnetic

Recommended Posts

Hi

Would appreciate any information that can be provided on this helmet shell. It has unusual bale mounts welded to the shell. Both the shell and edging are magnetic. Marked "G.S.W.  P&H". The painted badge on the front is 8th Bn CEF. It was obtained from Canada as part of a WW1 job lot a number of years ago.

Cheers

Looks like it was re-used in WW2.
