    Trouble is I don't have the OD Mk3's anymore,when I get another one I'll put it up against the Khaki green one.
    I don't know how many or for how long the khaki green painted Mk3's were made for, trying to tell from a black & white picture if a helmet is painted khaki or dark brown is not easy unless it's up very close.(the chap in front of the tank kneeling down looks to be lighter than the other Mk3's ?)
    Some of the Mk3's I've seen have been painted OD over the textured dark brown only on the outside, some painted inside & out OD. Others have been stripped of the original dark brown paint & are now smooth OD inside & out.
    I suppose this was going on sometime during the 50's & maybe into the early 60's?

    Here's 2 Mk3's, 1 has the original Khaki green paint (lighter shade) the other has been repainted post war with olive drab.
    The Mk3 painted post war was once khaki green & has the remains of a 1943 dated liner which would be about right as the early Mk3's were introduced in 43 into early 44.
