Is there or does anyone have a definitive list please of WW2 made MKII shell makers?

Have just bought a MKII and only marking/stamp I can see and have studied it thoroughly is an F 61 stamp by one of the chinstrap lugs.

Thanks.

Still no joy with identifying the F 61 stamping.

http://thebrodiehelmet.weebly.com/ It might be listed here. Does it have a dimple on top to sink the head of the liner screw?

No dimple,it isnt a Belgian one as far as I know.

When I get back to work will get some paint stripper and strip it down to see if it reveals any more markings/stamps.
