    Default British Helmet - Possible Malta Camo?

    Hello,

    I have acquired this helmet from a friend who purchased it while on holiday in Malta recently. I am not sure what to make of it. It seems to have some camo underneath the top layer of green paint. I have not touched it yet, not even cleaned it.

    What are your opinions please?

    Hello,
    An interesting British MKII helmet. I can't see it as a camo though. Perhaps different in hand, but it appears that the whole shell was once painted in tan colour with green applied to the top at some point. The original tan is visible in some places on top but perhaps only due to wear/thinning. The tan paint could possibly indicate prior use in the African campaign... I certainly wouldn't recommend 'cleaning' it! Leave it as is mate. Cheers.
    Best regards,
    Chris
