A First War Mark I Motorized Machine Gun Corps Helmet

A First War Mark I Motorized Machine Gun Corps Helmet - Early-issued version of the infantry helmet. British-made, steel, non-magnetic, in gray, smooth finish, with a raw edge, front with a stencilled red paint insignia consisting of crossed machine guns surmounted by the Royal crown with a ribbon banner below inscribed "CANADA", representative of the Motorized Machine Gun Corps. Inside, steel-framed cradle supporting a blackened canvas liner with underlying cotton linen support and leather backer, mesh support with drawstring, stamped "B" over "S" and "30" ("B" and "S" indicating the manufacturer, W. Beardmore & Company Limited of Glasgow), with pressed fabric in the dome. There is no rubber ring in the dome, indicative of the early Mark I version of the helmet, as it was not issued as part of the helmet's construction until the design of the Mark II version. The original leather chinstrap along with its hardware remains intact, the chinstrap remaining relatively supple for its age and size stamped "7 1/4". Helmet measures 287 mm x 300 mm x 120 mm, exhibiting bubbling on the exterior, along with various contact marks and paint loss overall, as worn. (C:4)
