Yes it is, darker oxidisation on outside, nice original on interior 

Then that would make it a early surviving example, as you know Colonial troops to include the Foreign Legion would have all their helmets painted Khaki, at first these trops were uniformed in Horizon Blue but in due course switched over to Khaki for the rest of the war to include the helmet.
