I've just received this interesting lid that I wanted to share.
It appears to be a British RO&Co shell with original factory paint on the inside and field applied desert tan camo on the outside.
The Jaeger Rand liner is fixed with a British "economy size" bolt and the outside paint looks to applied afterwards.
The chinstrap is at some point replaced by a British MKIII, but the lugs are "early war" issue original to the shell.
In my opinion it looks like a typical mix of commonwealth components which were often used by 8th army units.
Opinions are welcome.
@Mod, For some reason I cant add the photos in the text box, íf possible please change it for me.
