MKIII Helmets issued to the Black Watch of Canada

July 2 2003 at 6:25 PM

My wife bought me a new book the other day titled "D-Day The Strategy, The Men, The Equipment" published by MBI Publishing Company in 2001 (ISBN 0-7603-1192-7). On pages 178-179 there is a picture of Canadian uniforms and equipment from the Memorial Museum, Bayeux. In the picture is a MKIII helemt painted with a red hackle on the side and the caption states "Mk III helmet with insignia of the 'Black Watch of Canada'." I have never heard of MKIII helmets being issued to the BWC. So my question is, does anyone know the number of MkIII's issued the the BWC?

Thanks in advance,
