    Nothing spectacular but good stuff none the less.
    The MKII came with the Camo net, Aussie 1943 dated first field dressing, liner and chinstrap. It is a CL/C dated 1940. The liner is a small size 6 1/2.
    The compass pouch is ZL&T dated 1941 and the pistol ammo pouch is post war.

    The beret is not WWII, satiny type lining, no vent grommets and a light weight material make up the body of the beret. Opinions on it are appreciated, but I am thinking it is modern or not military issue at all.

    Really nice and for a great price too! 1940 dated Canadian helmets are pretty tough to find.

    Very nice Jeff! I have the brother to your helmet...same date and batch number. Mine has a C Broad Arrow stamped into the metal below one of the chinstrap lugs. Can't see if yours has the same thing.
