Arrived today, a well used example with a camo overpaint. It was obviously stripped back to bare metal when it was restored for WWII use in the late 1930's with a textured overpaint and then the pale brown stripes added on top after it had seen some use I think. A lovely been there paint job IMO.
Made by Thomas Firth & Sons with uncommonly seen for MKI* it has MKIII chinstrap lugs. It came with post war liner and chinstrap that the seller put in which I have replaced with a MKI liner and MKII chinstrap that I had as spares.
I had been after a MKI* for a while so very pleased to get this example.
