    Hi Jake, What's the paint on the outside, khaki green textured paint? If so army. But even if it is, the home guard used Mk2No.1's as well as the Mk2No.2's.

    Thanks Aaron these were the only pics and I cannot see any holes machined either side,but the Brown would be more likely Homefront than army unless this is Khaki coloured paint..............

    Has it got any dates on the shell or the liner Jake. It looks good, but the paint needs to be textured and even then the HG also used them as Aaron mentions. The exterior looks greenish in the pics, but the underside a bit browner. Perhaps some better pics would help.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I just found it for sale, I had thought you already owned it Jake. For a netted helmet, the price is OK, original nets go for 20-30 quid these days.

    Sorry Jerry for the confusion Bud,just wanted some opinions as it looks good but im not really up with Brit-lid prices,I know of one thats on at over £100 but I guess thats normal with a netted Army Helmet,but with regards to Homefront/ARP etc Im struggling with costs and so on....
    With Regards Jake.
