WW1 Period British Pith Helmet with Regimental Fla

In used condition but still looking very nice is this WW1 period example with Regimental flash attatched to the eight fold cloth puggaree. The overall body has taken on a lot of patina and has lost its top cone, the cork crown has been crushed but its kept its shape.The inside liner is complete and supple but stained from use. The WD inspection stamp is clear and the owner has written some of his details to the crown in pencil. His service number is H/47515 and his initials appear to be W.R.M. A quick search brings up Sgt W.R.Mitchel who is entitled to a trio, his service number changed after units emalginated.
