Polish Armed Forces in the West UK MKII 1942 Helmet


Recommended Posts

Hello.  I am a seller of militaria.  I specialize in French items, but am interested in militaria from all over the world.

I have an opportunity to buy a helmet on a local auction in Poland.  The seller says it is an original Polish Armed Forces Helmet in the West United Kingdom MKII 1942 issue.  If you know about this type of items, can you please take a look at the photos I provide?

Again, I am asking because I resell.  The seller of this helmet is asking a significant sum and I do not want to pay if it is not original.

Thank you.  Linas

Hello ,the helm looks pretty original but a detail is interesting .usually the Polish eagle was paited in white over red over the helms . for some reason that you must question to the owner ,here the eagle is not painted but merely outlined in red .

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
