    Default Brit and possible Canadian lids

    With things being a little slow over on the M1 forum and to prove I am not just an M1 bloke, I thought I'd show a few of my Brit lids here. There are two Mk3 "D-Day" lids, one with net and shell dressing and one with a unit flash. Both liners are by CCL 1944. The dispatch riders lid I included as it would have been a similar one that my father wore in WW2. He was with 72 Wing, RAF. As it is fiery hot outside right now, i thought the South African desert lid would be appropriate too. It's one of my favorites as it has very nice paint.

    Best Regards,

    Andy

    Thanks, KradSpam. There are plenty about, and they (mostly) are not that expensive for now.

    Now that would be a bonus, thanks tinlid. I'll check it out. To be truthful I had forgotton it was on there under the net! I always assumed it was an artillery thing, as didn't they use different segments of a circle to denote different units?
    Anyway, I'm off to google for some research!

    Andy

    Edit:

    Canadian Grenadier Guards?
