    Default MK II - UK or Canadian ?

    Here is my MK II as I got it.
    The inner layer of paint is green and textured, while the outside one is more brownish with remains of texture on the lip.
    No markings are visible on the shell as inner lip is covered with textured paint.
    The liner is marked 949 7.

    Thanks !

    Inside paint is textured khaki green which is probably WW2, while the outside has been repainted at one time. The net is a post war one though.
