    For some reason I always thought the shape of the Mk5 to be REALLY ugly when worn.

    Great example though, you dont see as many of these as the brodies or the Mk6.

    Absolutely...I know there's a lot of lid purists out there,who might take offence at my wilful destruction of a "classic British" Lid...but let's be honest their horrible, and probably worth more in scrap metal,than as a combat lid Laughing
