Royal Canadian Engineers – Mk2 helmet

Original WW2 Royal Canadian Engineers (RCE) MkII helmet. Genuine period RCE decal applied to the left side. The helmet is in used condition, the helmet has an original period extra layer hand brushed paint over the factory paint, something we see often on field worn helmets. This helmet is maker marked GSW, dated 1940. The liner damage (see photos), British made and maker marked FFL and dated 1943, size 7. Bolt and nut are untouched.

Helmet is uncleaned, a nice original example! Soldier’s name is scratched inside the helmet, RICHARDS.

Eight members of the 11th Field Company RCE were killed in action on March 18 1945 by an explosion from an anti-tank mine. One of these man is named Sergeant Charles Valentine RICHARDS. We found another RICHARDS who served the RCE, William Frederick RICHARDS. We cannot say for certain that this helmet belonged to any of these men, both are buried at Groesbeek, the Netherlands.  This information is just to share and does not affect the selling price!
