    Help with Canadian MKII with unit insignia and camouflage


    Recommended Posts

    I recently found this very interesting Canadian MKII with a painted emblem that I need help identifying. I'm happy with my colleagues' opinion

     

    It is marked G.S.W, therefore manufactured by "General Steel Wares of Toronto". It is also marked "MKI" and "1941" on the shell.
    The liner, as all Canadian helmets were, has the Viceroy manufacturer's marking from the year 1940.

     

    It has a nice sand-colored camouflage paint job brushed over the original paint. Typical of the helmets used in the Mediterranean theater.

     

    It is also interesting that on the inside, there is a white ribbon bordering the liner.

     

    Thanks
