Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does anybody have any information about John Round & sons making helmets during ww1? I've got a ww1 helmet shell,  the early raw edge type with the stamp mark

JR&S A5

Thanks 

Mick

They don't appear on my list of manufacturers of Brodie helmets either here or worldwide. JSS was Joseph Sankey??

Hi Mick

I have found this site https://www.treasurebunker.com/forums/index.php?/topic/1514-british-ww1ww2-brodie-helmet-maker-stamps/  it doesn't fully answer your question but does mention John Round & Sons.

"JR& S" seems too much of a coincidence...who knows, some workman might have used his "initiative" to give the helmets the full silversmith manufacturers initials..
