SA Mk II thoughts and opinions

    The helmets were sent for painting to Messrs. Herbert Evans & Co. (Pty) Ltd. Helmets were first painted in the standard UDF green, then a darker UDF green and later in a desert sand or those helmets destined for troops in the Italian campaign, in a brown. Jager Rand (Pty) Limited manufactured and fitted the head linings and made delivery of the completed helmets to War Supplies.

    Thanks for posting this Aaron a great bit of info from Mick could not help notice this paragraph referring to the colors of paint that were adopted taking special notice of the color brown for the Italian campaign found this statement rather interesting but would there not have been sand texturing on these examples as well as there is no mention if it was used on all helmet bodies that were painted by Messrs ? or is this just wishful thinking on my part.

    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 !!!!!

    That's the trouble it doesn't mention about the textured paint?
