A little outside my comfort zone of SS and German Helmets as I expand my horizons and work on my Canadian militaria collection. I am very interested in acquiring this helmet.
Would appreciate thoughts on the fibre rim helmet below. Some history - was bought as a Canadian WW2 era para, came with Canadian netting and has 1 Canadian strap 1 Brit. Is the Canadian strap a postwar Canadian Rapid Reaction Force strap? Example shown is purported to be different in detail to the RRF type strap. I now it's been repainted but not the gaudy green used but this is the flat green used wartime (I'm told). I've seen the DR modified helmets this one doesn't bear resemblance, Question is paint a period paint, and was a strap like this ever used by the Canadians wartime? (the strap with the embossed edges)
Thanks in advance for opinions. Not my pics, I do have a few more but this hopefully will suffice.
