    Yes, modern liner, paintwork and decal. I wouldnt hold out much hope for original paint under there, but you can always do an exploratory bit of paint removal with acetone and cotton buds if you are in doubt. It look from the pictures like you wont find anything interesting though.

    and should i refurbish it by stripping of all paint if nothing is underneath because i think it looks pretty crude i think it has been sprayed and then left to drip dry

    The yellow is found on post war German fireman helmets,

    Yes, this is a wartime shell originally. I think there is no harm is stripping the paint off it and doing a better job yourself.

    Yes I think used post war but still a wartime shell so you could restore it
