    Default MK2 No.2A TOWN HALL

    A No.2A which was originally painted textured khaki green for the home guard, & was then over painted black with the words TOWN HALL to the front.
    I have no idea why this was done, but I can't fault the wear or age of the repaint.
    Just one of those odd ones that gets thrown up every now & again.

    Hi Aaron I love one off examples such as these for me it really makes collecting interesting I can see so many possibilities with this Mk II but a small rural community or village are the first thoughts to role around in my head nice pick up .

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

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    Hi Aaron, I saw this one on the net and nearly bought it! It certainly is different, I like it. As you say, the paint work all looks contemporary and original. Good pick up. Leon.
