WW2 British Airborne HSAT MK2 Helmet by kay Canvas

Made by Kay Canvas these are now one of the best replica Airborne helmets made, the shells are machine pressed just like they were originally and finished in a rough textured paint to stop shine..

The MK2 helmet saw some use on D-Day but during Operation Market Garden most front line troops were wearing the MK2 helmet. There was little change from the Mk1 helmet with the exception of the leather chinstrap now being replaced by canvas as this did not suffer shrinkage and could fit better, it was also quicker and cheaper to make. The shell and liner remained the same.

Features:

  • Steel shell
  • Textured paint finish to stop shine
  • Helmet liner made from aluminium
  • leather sweat band
  • Black sorbo side padding
  • Black sorbo bump pad in top
  • Cotton web head suspension
  • Mk 2 canvas chinstrap with a leather chincup
  • stamped Kay Canvas inside

Originally made from late 1943, most original helmets are dated 1944 and were officially issued from February 1944 to airborne soldiers
