    Well we weren't wearing them in Malaya or Korea in the late 40's early 50's so i think post war use for this one is unlikely.

    Was the Mk2 used by certain units on home territory, such as home guard/ national service?

    I think nashos wore the slouch hat, not the tin lid......

    Very nice helmet,
    your reasonings on the period in which this camouflage was used interest me a lot, the color used for green spots appear to be the same tone utilized to cover this my Australian Mk2, which are never able to be dated with certainty, although I always thought of a jungle use.
