    Default 2nd Army Group Royal Artillery MkII

    Hi all!

    I would like to share an MkII of the 2nd AGRA, that I have for some time in my collection. It has been repainted at least 2 times over the original green paint, once in tan and once more in green. It's bearing the artillery flash and the 2nd AGRA insignia, painted in hand. No makers mark is visible, it is covered under the rough paint. The 1940 dated liner is unfortunately pretty dry, but I think that the helmet really has some character!

    Regards, Giorgos

    The date of the above helmet is 1940. Now I will try to put up some pictures of pre-war pugree R.A. badges worn in India. 23rd. Mountain Artillery and 77th Field battery 6th. Field Brigade, I also have the 12th. Poonch Mountain Battery but my camera battery has just run flat. John.
