WWI First Pattern Rimless British Brodie

The original rimless Brodie shell with the first pattern liner.   This shell is painted dark blue/green

and has the six fingered liner in “American Cloth” (oil cloth) and the wool skull cap of the early design.  Oil cloth is user friendly

and the wool is milspec 1910 pattern mustard color.  This was a poor liner to begin with and still is, however we have

tweaked” the design a little bit so the rivet (the only thing that holds this liner in the shell!) will not pull

through the wool as was the case in the original version.  Here’s your chance to own one of the rarest

helmets from WWI and fill in the gap in your collection or portray early war British.

WWI US Marine Corps Doughboy with Sitting EGA

WWI American or British shell (your choice) with sitting EGA (Eagle Globe and Anchor) mounted two

fingers above the rim.  This helmet is exact in every respect to the originals, right down to the

nut on the back of the EGA and the punched hole in the shell.  Early model bronze EGA.  You can choose

from either the British model shell with split rivet bails (as used by the first Marines to go “Over There” or the later

model American shell with the domed rivets attaching the bails.  Either shell is period correct.

Price: $150.00

China Marines Helmet with Standing EGA or Devil Dog Insignia

 

This is the same shell as our WWI US Marine Corps Doughboy with the

Standing EGA or the Devil Dog insignia.  I have seen one original shell with the Devil Dog insignia and liked it

so much I decided to include it in the catalog.  I can’t verify that this helmet ever saw any

kind of service but the age was right and the bulldog has the right amount of attitude.  As for the standing

EGA, this is a post WWI variation and was used in China on the sand finished helmets.  American

or British type shell, your choice.

China Marines Soochow Creek Helmet

This is our most sought after helmet.   It is the “shiny” version of the 1927 model Kelley Transitional Helmet with a

Theater made version of the EGA in Antique Bronze with German Silver rope over the fouled anchor.   After the

Russian Revolution in 1917 many of the jewelers from Faberge escaped to China.  This EGA is modeled after

an original and even has the Chinese hallmarks on the back of the eagles wings.  (those symbols spell out

“Prairie Flower Leather Company” but only you have to know that!)  PFLCO was commissioned by the United

States Marine Corp to manufacture a number of these EGA’s to be given out to soldiers of the

1st Battalion 4th Marines “in order to recognize outstanding leadership shown by a Marine within

the battalion who is the embodiment of Marine Corps’ core values and leadership traits and principles”.

An incredibly rare helmet at a more than reasonable cost.
