Helmet Mark I 8th Division WW1

Recommended Posts


British Mark I helmet with steel plates supplied by Hadfields Ltd as evidenced by the marking on the hull "HS 75".

The Americans were first equipped with the British helmet. Subsequently, the country manufactured its own helmet, copied from the British model in a few details and as of November 11, 1918, there were 2,700,000 helmets M1917 manufactured in less than a year.

However, it isn’t uncommon to see American soldiers with British helmets.

I present you this British helmet in the colours of the 8th Infantry Division with a painting typical of the period of the return at home in 1919.
