    WANTED Matchless G3L

    Yes I have seen that one and have messaged to ask for the frame no. And engine no. On eBay and milweb,he did reply on milweb with engine no but not frame no and is now not replying when I’ve asked. as you say at a reasonable price it could be the basis to get it right,but would rather something a bit more complete wartime spec hence asking on here.

    1940 MkII Helmet - Khaki Green No.3 Paint?

    I have previously read somewhere that helmets were in fact painted kg3 but after a while oxidised and they turned to the brown colour most are seen, leading most to believe the helmets were painted service brown. the colour we know use for our BEF helmets are now kg3
