Odd WW1 Chinstrap Configuration


Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone, I saw this helmet today on eBay and it is quite interesting. I'm not sure if it is post war or possibly a field repair anyways its just odd to me.

Now that I'm not on my phone and can see the photo more clearly, it's definitely a WWII British Mk. 2. The fabric is missing from the chinstrap, but it originally looked like this.
