    A very nice Mk II Airborne666 I really like the knotted later second variation camo net and Johno you are correct they are very addictive and there are a few rare variations out there they should not be treated as equals I started like so many others many years a go with but one helmet and as my collection grew so did my fascination with this Iconic piece of Canadian History.
    Any chance on sharing the steel batch number with us I have been collecting and cataloging steel batch numbers for some time now and I find them rather fascinating and although I may never be able to correlate a certain steel batch to a production date with any certainty I still do find it an interesting subject all the same the earliest helmet body I have seen to date is owned by are very own mk1rceme who has a 1940 dated C.L./C. Steel batch #1 in his collection and a bloody nice lid it is .
    The earliest in my private collection is a 1940 C.L./C Steel batch #7 I find the early 1940 dated C.L./C. of particular interest for one other reason there is a very small C-/l\ stamped on the exterior of the helmet body just below the chinstrap lug retaining rivet this I have only seen so far on 1940 dated shells with very low steel batch numbers I do have a theory that possibly this was done on the first 25.000 production run but this is only speculation on my part as I have no proof .
