    Default Mk2 Australian with net

    Finally got an Aussie Mk2, comes with an net that I didn't think was original to it, but there is a nice ghosting where it has been on for a long time, so maybe it is.
    Textured paint outside, smooth in, stamped on the shell CS14591 ( Commonwealth Steel) ink stamp 7 1/4 & an broad arrow over something.I presume the chin strap is correct ?
    Liner ink stamped as well. Any feed back from our Australian helmet collectors would be good to check all is ok.
    Thanks.

    Nice one Aaron, don't let Dave see that you have beat him to an Aussie lid!! Leon.

    Did you pick it up in the UK Aaron? It looks to be in very good condition.

    Very nice, Aaron. I know you have been without an Aussie lid for a long time. WRT the net - I believe it is an Australian net. I have one in my collection just like it. The twine is very thick - almost like thin rope.

    Congratulations !

    I knew it was a original Aussie net, but was suprized that it had been on there so long & had left an imprint. Which was a bonus, thanks for the comments.

    Would love a Kiwi, but they are even harder to find.

    Good one Aaron,
    about time you got the Aussie Version Mate and good to see the stamped liner as well.
    Cheers Mick
