    I too had doubts about the badge belonging to the helmet, it looked a slightly different shade of blue to me but i'm in no doubt now!...

    I read that the badges for these helmets where not always made in the same factory as the helmets. There were 8 manufacturers that I have read about who all used different shades of horizon blue and so if you see a helmet with original factory paint there will be on occasions a discrepancy in the shades between badge and helmet. The main reason you see more helmets with the same colour for badge and helmet is because they have recieved a field/depot repaint. The reason that you see dust and a little rust behind the badge on my helmet is, it never recieved a repaint so the gaps between helmet and badge were never sealed.

    I mean Ian's medic helmet at the the start of this thread, for me it's a cracker and better than his French engineer's helmet.
