    Though probably correct, it does somewhat kill the romance of Leon's newest excursion into brit lids. A cricket club lid must have been up there with WG Grace's box on his most wanted lid.
    I can live with it Jerry, it is still a nice lid and as my old grand pops has bought it for me it will always hold a special place in my heart. It must have been "destiny" that he would buy me this one anyway as he is a born and breed Islington man which as I am sure you know is in the county of MIDDLESEX!!! Leon.

    A county council lid must be quite a rare beauty in its own right mate and a middlesex one is pretty cool with its similarity to the cricket club of the same name.

    Pretty cool that your bamps is from the county.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Well it's here, taking any images of this are a real pig as it is shinier than my old parade boots!! Anyway, it's a good looking lid, the black paint is very thick and shiny , there is also the "shadow" of another Middlesex M.C.C decal to the rear underneath the paint. It also has the half way house spring chinstrap with an elasticated middle section, certainly a helmet a bit different to the norm! Leon.

    Nice Mk II Leon I would proudly display it in my collection looks to have seen very little service and the water transfer decal is killer.

    Regards Mark
    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
