I recently picked up this British Mk IV Turtle Helmet for a really good price. The shell is a BMB 1952 and the liner is a FFL size 7 also 1952. The shell is painted black and I think its original. I've read that black was possibly used in Jungle theatres but it seems a bit too shiny to me. The liner has started to fray near the band. I decided to jazz it up with a British WW2 green camouflage net which I got from tinlid (Aaron) over at ww2britishhelmets.co.uk (thanks very much). I'm thinking I might scrim it up with some hessian.
Any comments appreciated.
