    A been-there pick-up from yesterdays Newark (UK) fair....it's soooooooo different....well, actually, the Mockingbird is threaded onto one of the foliage straps which has then been crudely re-attached....that's my justification anyway.

    2011 dated, owners name'n'number, blah blah.......10/10 for strap-end taping.....5/10 for edge taping...should've taken more time

    ...actually I reckon we could just keep re-posting the same pics of the same helmets here.....shall we close this thread and re-open it in 20 years time when all the newbies are joining/interested and someone gives a **** ? :-)

    Three "been there" pick-ups from this years War & Peace Show

    This ones still got a cloth cover on...but it's been trimmed, de-rimmed, taped, sprayed and netted (and un-netted)...great colours....

    This one's been taped, masked and sprayed - the photo's don't do the workmanship justice...the rim piece is hangin' on in there....

    'nothing overly special about this one other than it's a direct paint job...straight to shell. Not the most exciting of camos but direct paint jobs deserve a place too.

    Would it be fair to say that the Mk7 is the second longest CONFLICT-worn Brit helmet, after the relinered Mk4 (Mk5? Mk4A?) ?
