~ WW1 Scottish Home Guard Brodie Helmet ~

A nice example of a First World War Brodie Helmet from the Scottish Home Guards.

It is a war office pattern helmet (rimless) in olive green with a 1916 pattern liner of Oilskin and netting.

It is stamped under the rim ‘FS 203’, the initials standing for T.Firth & Sons Ltd of Sheffield.

There is a red, white and black hand-painted tartan decal to one side.

It is complete with its leather straps.

~ Dimensions ~

The helmet measures 31cm (12 ¼ inches) front to back and 29.5cm (11 ¾ inches) side to side.

It has an inner circumference of 71cm (28 inches) and a depth of 12cm (4 ¾ inches).

It weighs 785g.

~ Condition ~

There is a small dent to the crown of the helmet and a small split to the rim.

The chin straps are a little cracked and worn with one of the chin straps appearing to have been repaired with glue.

The lining is a bit worn in parts but is generally in a decent condition with no major damage.

The helmet has general age wear, oxidation and patina with some loss to the paint in parts but is otherwise in a nice condition for its age.
