    Hi Mark, I will do that, it has arrived and here it is! A much "brighter" blue than I was expecting but I like it, you can also see some other numbers under the blue over paint to the revers. Leon.

    I could not agree more that looks a like a great stool or ottoman can we get a few more images of it taken at a bit of a distance so we can see it in its entirety
    I rather like the Mk II as well thanks for the extra images Leon IMO the over paint and the covered lettering just adds to the history of the piece.

    Regards Mark

    Sorry gent's , the stool is a bog standard issue without any unit markings! Gentle on the backside but useless against heavy artillery. Leon.
