    Default 1986 Dated British Mk-6

    This British Mk-6 was recently sent to me by an absolute gentleman on this forum that new I was in need of an example to compliment my commonwealth helmet collection this was quite unexpected as he sent it as as a gift and would accept nothing in return not even accept an offer from me to pay the cost of the postage my many thanks James I am quite ecstatic to receive it and it is displayed in a place of prominence among its younger siblings of British helmets
    This particular example of a Mk-6 is near to pristine in condition as I could have hoped for and IMO is an unissued example straight out of the crate it is nicely tagged and dated 1986 and came with a set of instructions/owners manual that he was kind enough to source for me as well and if that was not enough he sent it along with multiple accesories.
    (1) Multi terrain camo cover
    (2) Standard DPM camo cover
    (3) Desert DPM camo cover flashed to the Royal Irish Regiment
    (4) A large section of choc chip camo scrim net
    (5) Web Tex warrior helmet band in OD green
    (6) and two separate sets of goggle covers in Multi terrain camo pattern and Desert DPM which I will post up separately once I source a set of goggles and add them to the helmet .

    A few more images of the standard DPM camo cover and the Desert DPM camo cover with the addition of the choc chip scrim camo net which I have placed on the back of the helmet as a neck vale for protection against the desert sun

    Very nice Helmet and covers, I can also confirm that James is an absolutely genuine bloke, who also sent me a gift not so long ago when I was going through a really rough time, at the time my wife was awaiting tests and an operation to discover if she had Cancer, the gift I received certainly cheered me up no end and in a strange kind of way my wife too,as I was able to smile about something and had a distraction

    He's like a Militaria fairy god mother

    I can assure you gentlemen that his kindness has not been taken lightly by me and I have found him a rather minty 1942 dated C.L./C. Mk II and two tone Canadian camo net that is being carried by a friend and fellow collector to the UK next week and will be posted from London an absolute top notch gent in my mind .

    Just a little update to the thread now that I have a couple days off and back home on the Island James was kind enough to send me this wonderful Irish Army DPM cover for my Mk 6 and it is a great piece IMO showing genuine use just the way I like my helmets and accessories used but not abused .
    My many thanx James you are an absalute Gent and I am thrilled to have it as part of my collection.

    Regards Mark
