SUPERB WW1 MACHINE GUN CORPS BRODIE HELMET WHICH BELONGED TO A MC WINNER FROM THE 37TH BATTALION MACHINE GUN CORPS.

BRODIE HELMET WITH MGC BADGE TO THE FRONT AND THE HORSE SHOE OF THE 37TH DIVISION TO THE SIDE, LINER COMPLETE BUT CHINSTRAP SNAPPED AND AN AREA OF THE HELMET RIM LOST. OTHERWISE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH ORIGINAL PAINT.

WHEN PURCHASED CAME WITH AN OLD LABEL WITH THE NAME WALTER LUBELSKI AND WHAT APPEARS TO BE AN INVENTORY NUMBER TO THE REVERSE.

ON INVESTIGATION IT HAS BEEN REVEALED THAT WALTER LUBELSKI WAS THE ORIGINAL NAME OF A JEWISH IMMIGRANT WHO CHANGED HIS NAME TO WALTER LYTTLETON AND OBTAINED A COMMISSION IN THE 37TH BATTALION OF THE MACHINE GUN CORPS.

AN INTERESTING ITEM WORTHY OF FURTHER RESEARCH.
