Issued in 1919 by both the British and Canadians, blue cotton chevrons on cloth backings represented each successive year of overseas service with a red chevron denoting service between 1914 and 1915. Worn on the lower right forearm of the tunic, this badge features four chevrons denoting four years of service. Tunic removed, the badge shows wear but remains in excellent condition.

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".
