    I have a couple of WWI doughboy style helmets with liners I would like some help ID'ing. If there is someone on the board who knows about these helmets lets talk.

    Both have Liners and straps one in better condition then the other. Looking on eBay I have seen this type of helmet refered to as a Brodie.

    I also have a Pair of Canvas lace up Leggings I need to figure out.

    I'll post photos later today if anyone takes interest in the thread.

    THEY ARE CURRENTLY NOT FOR SALE..

    OK never mind much searching on Google has answered my questions Two of the Helmets are Post WWII Dutch Helmets they are marked with a

    VerBliFa, Vereenigde Blikfabrieken VB56 stamped on the rim and were issued to the Dutch version of Civil Defense.

    The Third helmet is Canadian and marked CL/C and dated 1941. This was a helmet used during WWII.
