    Default British Mk2 Helmet

    Hi guys, here is my one example of a Mk2. I thought I needed at least one to counter the growing herd of German lids. I believe it is in all WW2 spec, but please correct me if I'm wrong. My collecting field is usually at the other end of an Enfield.

    Thanks guys, I would like a wartime lid from the other major players lid too at some point, but the Germans will always heavily outnumber anything else

    One quick Q to you commonwealth guys; should a Canadian Mk2 have smooth semi glossy green paint? The one in question also has a red/blue RA flash. Would Canadian troops use the same flash as the British Army Royal Artillery?

    Thats exactly what im after Andy but surprisingly more difficult to get as the vast majority on ebay are all nearly all home front/ARP issued types,great looking example you own.........Jake.
    With Regards Jake.

    Looking at the pics again now the Canadian one seems more brown. The liner has more bumpers around the edge of the shell, and the crown pad is different.
