    To me the helmet looks to a post war German helmet and the badge on the front looks to be Dutch ,is the text on the white label under the liner in German ?

    well after all these years i have found out what this helmet is.
    it is the armoured brigade 8. and the insignia is the 83rd panzerbataillon.
    based in luneburg korner barracks.
    so there you go i might keep this helmet now, but for the names that are all over it, and holland dont no yet. maybe somthing to do with NATO. could have somthing to do with canadian troops.
