Great war restored helmet supplier ?

Post by Gliderinf »

Are there any quality purveyors of restored WW1 Helmets (M16-17-18 etc) in Britain ?

Or Indeed in Europe ?

Or is it best to stick to the two US Suppliers ?

Thanks chaps - those are the two I'm aware of - just thought I'd see if there were any closer to hand.
