martin guerre,

First you need to determine if this is a Mk III or a Mk IV helmet. The MK III was worn on D Day by Canadian troops. The MK IV wasn't made until after the war. The attached wiki post may help you decide if your helmet is a Mk III or a Mk IV.

Regards,

Gordon

What makes it Canadian? it appears to be a BMB so British made and not the usual Canadian two tone net.

The MKIV's were made in 45 but I don't know if any were used wartime, possibly too late for it.
