    Great Home Guard helmets Aaron, I particularly like the 10th Middlesex one as it has not had the unit number tampered with, which seems to be the case with the majority of this Regiments lids that I see unfortunately. Leon.

    This is an Mk2No.1, factory finish black for use on the home front. It has then been repainted sand textured & a net added, again for use by the home guard.
