    Here’s a lid from the Winnipeg Grenadiers. What makes this one a bit interesting is there are two decals on it. There is a first one that was painted over green, and a second put over top. You can just slightly see the outline of the first decal.
    Although mostly known as an infantry regiment, while stationed in Jamaica guarding POWs, they were converted to an artillery unit in 1940. Mortars I believe.
    Then they had the luck of being assigned defense of Hong Kong with the Royal Regiment…and both were decimated.

    Here is one of the two RA helmets I own...the other is currently loaned to a friend for his WWII display. This one use to have what looks like a Royal Engineers decal over top that has, for the most part, flaked away.

    "Heavy Batteries RGA were equipped with heavy guns, sending large calibre high explosive shells in fairly flat trajectory fire.The usual armaments were 60 pounder (5 inch) guns, although some had obsolescent 5 inch howitzers. As British artillery tactics developed, the Heavy Batteries were most often employed in destroying or neutralising the enemy artillery, as well as putting destructive fire down on strongpoints, dumps, store, roads and railways behind enemy lines." .....The Long, Long Trail website
