    South African shell. Looks like a Brit liner. Liner retention screw/bolt is just plain wrong.

    Hello
    The colour of this SA MK2 remembers me to my MK4 or MK2 Late War examples(same Brown texture finish)
    Have the late examples of the UDF not later liners inside?
    A very good helmet im my eyes
    Best regards

    Phillips screws go back to the early 1930's but that shiny bolt is not wartime.
