    Picked up today, MKIII with a 1943 dated liner, though the 3 is not very clear in the pictures.

    I can't find any markings on the shell yet, but not really had much chance to give it a look over, only just got the pics as the light started to go.

    The method of joining the ends of the rim trim suggests a BMB shell and the liner does appear to be a CCL as stated by Mads.

    A nice early Mk3, as the first ones were painted khaki green. Before the more common dark brown.

    It is a green example with textured paint and an early one from the liner. It has two cracks in the shell, both in the same location either side of it, perhaps another sign of an early example as they look to be stress fractures and might be due to them not having quite sorted out the manufacturing process, though that is supposition on my part.

    Nice Mk III Jerry I am still on the hunt for one to add to my collection of turtles.

    Regards Mark
    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
