    "Helmet with a flag? " (RCOC)

    Post by jm on Thu Sep 17, 2015 12:48 pm

    My colleague had a helmet what was left after the liberation in the village where he lives, called Markelo.
    It's a helmet with sort of a flag or something he told me!

    Last Monday he gave me this helmet of the Royal Canadian Ordnance Corps. dancin\'

    Markelo is a small village in "Twente, Twente-Canal" what was liberated by the 2nd Can Inf Div. (FMR)

    I never find nothing anymore, or so I tell my wife. My bank account is wishing this was true. I'm about out for a while.


    I am always nervous with these painted ones. I can't tell original or not.

    From looking at servicepub's website on helmet flashes I was wondering about the PPCLI helmets, the green paint on the center of the helmet, is that a stripe or is half the helmet painted?
