Paint your helmet in camouflage - then stick a nice shiny decal on it! Sort of defeats the object.
The camo is clearly after the decal, I have seen many camouflage helmets with decals showing, this certainly does not mean it a fake. Paint can be seen over the eagle.
Wasnt meant as an opinion on authenticity. It looks to me from the photos as if the decal was on top of the cammo.
Sorry if I came across as a bit defensive. My poor quality iPhone pics don't really help matters.
Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.
Thanks Harry for your wise words, as you say we can't all agree and I feel comfortable as to it being ok, and will enjoy adding this one to my other items in my collection.
If you look at the decal, to the left/top is the black part of the decal on top of the camo? Not saying good or bad on this camo, it does looks scrubbed/cleaned to me. But my track record lately with camo's is not the best.

Good photos can make or break a helmet , I think the topic poster should make a better effort.
Based on the photos presented I would not have purchased the helmet.
For helmets of this class the forum should not be torn , it is either good or it is not.
Good photos will help us make that assessment.
9.5 out of 10 helmets presented on forums can be assessed correctly just by good photography.
If you are saying I didn't make an effort ,then think again, I can only use what I have, in future I will not post on here , as obviously my equipment and helmet is not up up your expectations, as to say the forum should not be torn is a ridiculous statement, I and everyone else has the right to an opinion. And if your saying that anyone who likes this helmet is wrong and should keep quiet , is a bit off. Many thanks for your opinion as I unlike you seem to value other people's ideas.
