Camo Painted 1955 Dated Mk II HSAT
« on: June 19, 2017, 06:31:05 AM »
Perhaps one more this morning a rather interesting example of a 1955 dated camo painted Mk II HSAT that I added to my collection last year it shows nice wear to the helmet body and liner that indicative to field use..
It has what would appear to be a chalked in 63 on the front of the helmet body who can say when the camo was applied but IMO it has been on there for many years it has that been there done that look I like so much in my helmets...The liner is in a size 6 7/8 and was produced by C.C.L (Charles Collett Ltd, London England ),

Regards Mark

Mark,

a visually stunning helmet, if only it would tell us its secrets, when and why was it painted in the camo.
Regards,

Jerry BB.

  One of my favorite types of helmets! It takes me back to when I had a complete WWII Canadian para mannequin in my collection. Thanks for sharing!  Scott
