    Indeed tinlid, the Irish ones were probably repainted several times since the war for parades. Notably the annual Easter parades. Possibly up to the sixties. They were still in use with the reserves until the eighties. I was issued one in 1980, interestingly though it was dark green. The one I own now still has it's original khaki colour internally. But the paint is definitely post war.
