    Very nice James, I have one with exactly the same set up, with the Salade and door trim etc !

    Personally I always feel the more dented they are the better, it shows they have been used in a conflict or two. I do not not like pristine lids as much,so yours is cool.

    As ever your general display's are fantastic Mate.

    Yeah,that makes sense, I have sourced a few over the years where the straps have been taped, some would say this is to create a personalised fit, but your theory is sound.

    Great reference picture James, I am guessing even though the picture is B&W, these French troops ( possibly legion) are wearing the salade brown side out!!!

    Tre' Bon Monsieur !!
