    A fine addition to the collection Leon and as stated an excellent collection of Home Front Lids.

    Regards Mark
    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Well James, it depends on what type of helmet the GPO has been put on.
    Could be smooth khaki green on the Mk2 No.1, or after 1939 black, Mk2No.2A also black.
    No.2 B,C, & D grey, apart from those colours I haven't seen any other colour, like white for rank.
    Or even red maybe for a fire squad in an GPO depot.
    Be nice to find one though.
