    I agree with Ned, concerning the camo paint...
    This means you have found a very nice helmet sir!

    Cannot judge thecamo paint because I never studied it, but the helmet looks nice and original. If it was mine, I would tend to believe that the paintjob was period too. I love it!

    Hi Guys,

    There appears to be a little confusion as to what 'Lozenge' pattern cammo looks like, so i've got a couple of examples to show here.

    They normally were made up of 4 or 5 colours. But that's not to say our man in the field copied the design on his helmet with what he could get his hands on, in this case 3 types of colour.

    I can just imagine him in a cold and damp bunker, drawing on his pipe, painting his helm by the flickering light of an oil lamp as shells crump overhead, dusting his cup of ersatz coffee. ......Ah well!

    Regards, Ned.

    I think the helmet is a bit refreshed, there green sand camo probably added later, to make a helmet more colored.
