Finally this RO&Co made Mk3 dated 1945, seen quite a few of these. Smooth grey/green inside & textured outside, not sure if this was painted during the war or more likely post war. None so far that I have seen have had an original wartime dated liner in, or if they were they had just been put in. Most liners seen in this one are repro's or post war.

Another khaki green Mk3 which is in prety good condition, most of the textured paint is still present, which makes reading the date/maker name un-readable.

But it's an BMB made shell, liner dated 1943 & made by CCL.

This Mk3 must have been in one of the last batches of Mk3's made as it's dated 1945, as of January 1945 the production of the Mk4 had started.

It's an BMB made shell, liner also an BMB but dated 1944.

Inside, of some interest if your an helmet nerd is the liner being BMB dated 1944 has the light khaki colour inside, which has the quality control stamp on one of the tongues instead of the cushion part.
