    Default Some Mk111 turtle helmet questions

    Finally found one of these lids.It looks to be un-messed with too.A BMB 44' dated shell and a 41' dated liner.Judging by the verdigris around the bolt it looks like it been there since issue.Ive read on this forum that these lids were issued prior to d-Day without liners and the soldiers used the liners from their old mk11's.Is this true?Could that be why my liner has an earlier date?The shell colour is a dark olive drab.
    (pics later as im pressed for time!)

    Sounds like a classic MkIII, & yes some were issued without the liners & they had to use there MkII liners. If it looks like it's been in a long time then there's no problem.
    Looking forward to seeing it.
