4th Canadian Mounted Rifles (CEF) WWI Helmet

4th Canadian Mounted Rifles (CEF) WWI Helmet

We offer here an example of the helmet worn by the 4th CMR (CEF) at the end of WWI. The Regiment had their helmets painted in French grey for the colour of the 3rd Division and had the unit cap badge soldered to the front as an identifier. This example is in rough shape, missing its liner and chinstrap, retaining about 70% of it paint, and cracked in two places with some dents. Not in the best condition, but has its original cap badge and priced right. The 4th CMR had an extremely good battle record and was highly decorated.
