    So Canada didn't move onto the Mk3 after the war? Looks like a nice lid with history

    No, Canada did not use the MkIII after WWII, but some officers were allowed to use the MkIII/IV in Korea. I have a pic somewhere in my files of the helmet in use...I will try to locate it and post it here.

    The Brits refurbed there MkII's in the 50's aswell, repainting & adding 50's dated liners.
