    Excellent diagram, looks like the guide in Militaria magazine isn't completey accurate. Not much information around for any of this!

    Attached an emblem and used the existing holes to fixate.

    Looks awsome did you have much of a problem finding the helmet emblem.

    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 !!!!!

    Thanks Mark. I wanted to get an emblem that matched the condition of the helmet but they aren't hard to get as demand is low. :-)

    It looks really good with the badge back on the front.


    Whatever its just an opinion.

    That is a very nice pith helmet, always great when you can restore a piece to its original state.

    These SA/Dutch piths are hot property. Many get buggered in order to accommodate the DAK buffs who are hot to trot for them. Great to see yours and hope that it remains as is.
