    A salty old devil that looks like it has been in a damp barn etc for quite a while !!
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    House Carles at the Battle of Hastings

    I'd like to see better photos, especially without the flash, to me it looks like it has had a whitewash coating but whether its period only detailed photos could help

    The shape of the chinstrap tells that it has been mounted over the front visor for a very long time.

    As you chaps say,hard to tell from these pictures but to my eye it looks more like a well weathered cammo.I can see plenty of original green plus a bit of brick red(along side the rust red!!) It could also be showing signs of a winter wash but i think that it is just the effect of poor storage that is giving that look. BETTER PICTURES PLEASE

    Better pics needed just as the police lid. Three pics is usually never enough.
