    Hi Guys,

    could you help me to identify this insignia ?

    there is a rectangular grey/blue of the 3rd CAN DI, but what mean the 3 inside ?
    This one as been found in south of Caen (France).

    I know 2 other MKII with same insignia found in Normandy.

    this helmet has been dammage in the farm were he was waiting for me :-))

    No name or serial inside

    Nice! I also have a MkIII with a 3rd division flash. No number in it though.

    Thanks for answers !

    mk1rceme, your helmet is attributed to a Regina Rifle soldier, isn't it ?

    No idea for the signification of the "3" inside ?

    regards

    I think the grey square background and number 3 stands for 3rd Canadian Infantry Division.
