Yes, Indeed they did!  The sites that I go to for
factual information about chain mail armor state that
due to recent uncovering in Celtic burial grounds and
the amount of rust and the patterns that the rust was
in suggest that the Celts were using Chain Mail before
5 BC.  I will try to find the URL for the site and
post it for you here.  

There were plenty of Anglo/ Saxons to steal armour
from once they were killed. Why wouldn't they have
stolen it from the dead bodies?
And yes the Celts were scavengers, just like any army
was at that time.  They took what they could use off
the dead bodies, armor, weapons, etc.
