Constructed of non-magnetic meganese and a steel rim, this second pattern Mk. I retains the majority of exterior finish. Inside, the liner remains largely intact though the chinstrap has been lost to time. Though the leather is slightly dry, the oil cloth remains supple, and netting is in tact. The helmet supplier is stamped "BURYS".
Constructed of hardened brown leather, a regimental sporran with accompanying belt. The sporran is assembled from multi-piece leather by running stitches, and rivets. Firmly stamped into the flap, the number 42 suggests issue to the 42nd Battalion CEF (Royal Highlanders of Canada).
