    Hi Mate.

    Love your latest lid Mate,they're very unusual to find on the surplus market.

    The only information I could find on the web ,is that these lids were mainly used by Ukraine's peacekeepers in Iraq.And that it would appear to be a lid that was supplied to these particular forces, and is not that common amongst the Ukrainian troops in their homeland.

    Also this juicy piece of information might be of use to you Mate.
