No.6 Group Control MkII helmet.
Scarce MkII No.2B helmet marked for wear by No.6 Group Control. No.6 Group represented the outer ring of London County Councils from Hendon and Wembley in the North to Staines and Twickenham in the South. The areas of Middlesex and Surrey covered by Group 6 necesitated sub-divsions A through D, administered by a central control. This helmet was probably worn by a member of the control staff.
Standard, un-manufacture marked MkII No.2B indicated by two holes to the rim. It was originally painted grey, the two indicators to a mild steel, non-ballistic helmet. Standard, 1940 dated MkII liner, size 6 3/4,with a named chinstrap \' B.Silvera\'.Subsequently overpainted black and with an applied transfer \'6 Group\' device. Paintwork rates at about 90% intact whilst the transfer is largely intact with a vertical cut top and bottom. Altogether a scarce and good condition example.
