  1. It's an Mk2 No.1.not an Mk2 No.2 (1-4 holes in the brim) meaning it is made of manganese steel, and if it were painted in textured paint on the outside, would have been issued to the military. Being smooth khaki green inside and out means it was used on the home front, when in early 1939 they tried to standardize ARP helmets, they painted them black from the factory. Hence others that were painted khaki green, but not always followed, were over painted black. That's why you see so many with khaki green paint on the inside, but black,white (promotion), or other colours on the outside.
