    Default MK2 Tan helmet with 1945 dated liner

    Hello
    I picked up this wonderful MK2 helmet
    It have the standart MK2 black liner rests on it and were complete
    The seller means that he bought it 20 Years ago on a british fleamarked
    The liner is Marked CCL 1945 and the shell 1942
    The colour seem period and the strap is a standart MK3
    What do you think about this helmet?
    Is it a real 8th army helmet or postwar made?
    Was it used in the desertwar 1940-43?

    Best regards
    Bavarian

    If it's the original khaki green, could have been used anywhere, if it's been repainted, again, used in a number of places.

    The colour is so old like on my MK2 SA version
    It seem under it is green
    Like a original 8th army one
    The liner seem replaced after the desertwar IMO
    In all cases a wonderful helmet
    I am like to post you next week my 5 new Brodies that I ve bought very cheap if they arrive before Chrismas
    A big advantage if British militaria is unpopular in Germany
    No other competitors
