    The only one I've seen was on eBay recently, but I can't seem to find it again. It looked a bit odd to me, then again it was the only one I've ever seen.

    It looks a bit dodgy, Mick. It looks like the paint has been chipped away at the top of the decal a bit too uniformly to be natural wear.

    You could be right Andy,
    But it is described as a Dug Decal,so they havnt finished the job.
    The main thing that bothers me,is that the Cross does not look like the known Chaplains Cross.
    Damn,why are decalled helmets so much of a gamble
