    Default I need an indentification on this one

    So I bought this helmet from a army surplus shop in Oulu, Finland this tuesday, and there was a sticker on the shelves which stated that some may be german made helmets (Finland started manufacturing its own helmets like this one in the fifties), and I'm not so sure if it is finnish or german. And while I'm here, I'll post pics of the cool finnish assault rifle bayonet which I also bought.

    No markings or whatsoever apart from the size number inside the helmet

    Well, Finland has used our own made assault rifle RK-62 and forward I think, so the bayonet has been propably made to fit that one, but they don't teach bayonet combat here in Finnish Defence Forces, at least not in the special forces
