No, not a good one , looks to be a post war Belgium Mk2 clone.
Note counter sunk hole for the nut and bolt, the steel rim plus smooth paint.
I felt there was something wrong i dont collect british but i tought this one was right thankyou for the reaction.
Hi, sadly Aaron is spot on, not a British MKII tan helmet. Leon.

I know about the countersunk bolt hole on Belgian MKII clones but what's different about the rim?
Hi Tony, Being an Belgium Mk2 clone, but from now on I will have to remember to call it an M49, it's just the way the rim sits on the shell, plus also I think it's made of steel & not stainless steel like the British ones. So they rust & the paint stays on there better.
Good comparison Belgium M49 & Brit Mk2.
