    This is a very rare find a British 1st Pattern Brodie Helmet with the chain mail holder hooks one either side and the front used by British tank crews.The helmet is a relic it does not have its leather liner or chin strap with some battle damage a blast crack down one side but is a very nice find from the battlefield.The helmet is rusty but still in solid condition it does have the odd bit of original paintwork on it on the outside and the inside the helmet does not have any of its chin strap holders but it is very solid not braking up or falling apart at all the chain mail hooks the side ones are missing but you can see where they were the front one is there the helmet has been very well cleaned  it is perfect for display or any collection.This is very rare to get such a nice solid Brodie helmet especially so clean and shiny recovered from the battlefield as they normally now just brake up when they are found due to rusting away as they were not as well made and thinner metal then other helmets.This helmet was recovered in woods near the village of Flers on the Somme battlefield 1916-1918. The village of Flers was the first village captured using tanks in September 1916 during the battle of the Somme.
