Thanks for the welcome. I managed to dig out one of my albums. Unfortunately the photos aren't great but this was long before digital. Unfortunately I don't have many showing the helmet clean as it were. They were mostly heavily camouflaged. You can see one with the Eastern command flash visible on the left here with 'LOVE' written in PVC tape. He was obviously influenced by Vietnam era. The man on the right is wearing a MkIV which I seem to recall was his own personal helmet not issue.
This one shows the group after an overnight exercise. One bare helmet being worn. Note the Bren and the NoIV Enfields and the American wool caps. Incidentally the guy second on the right with the cap later joined the British paras. He was a militaria buff even then. He had a full WW2 Para uniform, Dennison Smock and a para helmet.
This is me looking a bit tired and thinner than I am now. Note the helmet which I recall was actually dark green in contrast to the others. The only issue items I'm wearing are the boots and helmet. The rest is unofficial even the beret. The combat jacket is British surplus, the trouser US army. The belt is a '58 pattern British surplus to which is attached a modified '37 pattern pouch and West German water bottle. We were a motley bunch back then in the reserve.
