Helmet, Mk III, British, CCL, 1944


Scarce and nice genuine WWII British Mk III helmet, complete with original liner manufactured by CCL (Christy & Co. Ltd., London) and apparently dated 1944.

Produced from 1943 onwards, the Mk III, offering a better enveloping shape than the Mk II, retains its predecessor's liner. It was not used in actual combat conditions before June 6, 1944: on D-Day, the 'Turtle' helmet was worn by British and Canadian units involved in the first wave of the amphibious landing.

Good overall condition; original chinstrap still present.
