I stand corrected. I thought that the WWII British helmets had a flat headed screw attaching the liners, but I'm not a helmet collector.

I wpould guess gthat there is a certian cachet, if that's the word, to being a British Gallipoli casuakty, as opposed to an Aussie Gallipoli or a British Western Front KIA, but not a really rare...

I don't believe the bolt holding the liner in is military issue and the badge doesn't look military either. I'd guess it was issued, probably after the war, at a factory somewhere, either to a...

I'm going to say not European. The stars on the central device may be Chinese - Taiwan, perhaps - or it may be a fantasy/non-military piece.

Agreed: private purchase and worn by both military - this pattern - and civilians in the Far East [India, Singapore, etc.] between the wars.

Medics who were band members. Or viuce versa. A fine old British military tradition! Thanks for the info. and IDs. Fascinating stuff.

Absolutley! CEF badges start at $30-40.00 for the cheapest and go up to multiples of $100.00 for the scarce examples. A real bargain indeed.

It's also called a number of rude names by those who haven't yet got it! ;) Envy, pure envy.

Ah! Thank you for the information, Bond. I'd have assumed that the Indian made would be a more or less exact copy of the Brit model. Live and learn. :)

I see the 'VR' mirrored cypher as well, Dragnet, not a 'WR'. :)

From the photo of the mossy net, trying the other one on a helmet would tell you wether it is a cut down net, as the canvas part is clearly too small to be a helmet cover on its own, I think.

The crown is Victorian but, more importantly I think, John and William Andrews occupied 9 Pall Mall from 1821 to 1856, which makes it Victorian for certain. A very nice piece indeed.

Jenko. I was pulling your leg, mate. I understand heavy rings as fighting aids, just questioning the characerization of this ring as such a thing. That said, it is a very interesting piece. I...

Trench 'fighting' ring? As it, brass knuckle? An interesting piece of WWI art but if that were all I had to fight off an angry Hun, I'd be quite concerned! ;)

That one's probably pukka as well. It was the custom until fairly recently, and may still be, for various Native groups in Canada to make 'honorary chiefs' of various prominent white guys. The...

I suspect the warm water treatment would work but I would be very very careful about doing anything else to it to reduce the 'sticky'. Remember, it was made 70 years ago, very cheaply and not meant...

I wonder if the 'MED.' refers to 'Medium' Reg't, as in guns. Canada had a 118th Medium BATTERY, Royal Canadian Artillery in WWI but Byterock is correct: not a Cdn. unit.

Looking at the helmet emblem on the first one. Argentinian troops wore the Stalhelm style helmet, modelled on the Wehrmacht's helmets, in the WWII period and later, if that's any clue.

Indeed one of the more attractive European awards, IMO. I've always regretted not keeping the only group I owned - to an Indian Army cavalry offcier, oddly - which contained an Order of the Crown.

Mightn it be a civilian bandoleer, for shotgun shells? I can't pick out anything but the date from the stamps.
