Hi, I have picked up a MkII commonwealth helmet.
I can just make out a CLC stamp and it has a familiar Canadian green paint
I have had a number of helmets through my hands over the years and this is typical of the muddy green I have seen before.
The following details are on the strap:
WOOD 2018214

Can anyone help with the history and whether, indeed, it was a Canadian soldier?
Many thanks

In my experience, service numbers have usually been prefaced with a letter prefix, at least the ones in the Army.
