    Hi Mark, For British helmets its easy to tell army from civilian used ones, army are textured while civilian are smooth paint.
    How do you know this is army,would the civilian fire service have used helmets, a bit like the ARP marked ones?

    The Canadian helmets mostly seem to be factory painted the same colour, I just wondered how you can tell the difference between military & civilian use. I know there were some helmets stamped DP&H which were for home front use, I wonder how extensive the ARP was in Canada, fire brigades, police, Ambulance, home guard & the like.
    It's so much easier to tell Brit helmets apart.
