    thanks guys, yes I have also heard of this type being referred to as the 'Malta' camo ...... I have only seen one other painted in the same way and it was blue tho...... so I am a little confused about it :P

    There must be something under the rectangle on the front, unit badge or designation of helmets use.

    Hi Gary, Absolutely right !!! I have no intention of ever trying to "fill the gap" I like the lid exactly the way it is

    This helmet looks indeed like a Malta camo.

    This pattern was called "rubble wall pattern" When on Malta you can still observe walls that have this pattern. Piled chunks of rock filled up with mortar.

    In the War Museum of Malta I saw two types: one orginaly khaki with added brown and some green/brown ones with added sand colour.

    Nice helmet. Rather scarce I imagine!

    Cheers,

    Emile
