Article about: Hello Ade, Here's a post war Turtle given to me by a friend who found it in a garage. Mk IV 1954, manufactured by CCL. Do you know who CCL were? Cheers, Guy.

    Jelmer,

    MK III helmets, minus the liners, were issued to Canadian troops involved with the D Day landings on June 6, 1944. These troops removed the MK II liners from their MK II helmets and installed them in the MK III's.

    All MK III helmets were manufactured by three British companies, BMB, RO&Co & F&L, so the original "brown paint" would not be Canadian.
