So I've had this Canadian made MK2 for a couple of years now. Recently I've been informed that the insignia is for the Northumberland Fusiliers, but it's named to George W Foote of the RCASC. Just looking for as many opinions as possible on this beautiful old soldier.

That insignia is very faint!  I'm afraid I can't make much of it except that it appears to be red / dark / red.  A close-up shot of that bit of the helmet might help others make more useful comments.

OK, I see that now.  The 1st Cdn Corps used a red/white red rectangle with a gold maple leaf on it but that seems unlikely, to me, to be on a helmet.  I'd expect a regimental or corps marking.
