Recommended Posts

Provost Marshall?

Getting a medal means two things:

1. Someone saw you do it.

2. You didn't tick off the approval chain.

Prime Minister... OMG, it's Churchills helmet!

 

Seriously, I lean toward Provost Marshall also.

Haha, Canada also has a prime minister and since I found this one here in Canada it might be Provost Marshall.

 

Or maybe a slim chance it's navy; Photographers Mate?

Very nice. Really wish I had a decent surplus shop near me. Most of the ones in my area are really Army Navy stores that sell new clothing/supplies and like camping/survival gear

 

Same here. The good ol' days are gone where I live...........

These ones are all front seam, mix of fixed bails and swivel bails

Ok, I have a sore jaw from it dropping after seeing that picture!

 

There was a store that has several 55 gallon drums filled with M1's for $5 each, near me. But it closed 30+ years ago and I haven't seen such a sight since!

Cool helmet Pat! ....and nice stash you’ve found! Is that at the store in Inglewood (Crown Surplus) or that other one in NE Calgary?

Rick, it's the one in NE Calgary. Crown Surplus used to have a lot of M1's but now they shifted their focus on modern military, airsoft, camping, hiking and hipster fashion. I miss the old Crown Surplus...

What are they charging for those helmets??? On average?

 

The rear seams are $49 CAD per shell

Front seams are $100 CAD per shell

The more "premium" sets are $200 CAD

 

Yea it's a bit pricey, I'm waiting for a better sale. The shells are all repainted, have euro parts and fixed bails have a repaired loop (soldered wires).
