    Yepper, Phil! That does, indeed, look to be this exact kind of helmet! A shame they're so ambiguous in their identification, though! I'm thinking, in other words, that They didn't know what the heck it was any more than We do!

    Thanks Wagriff

    I do not think this is Japanese. All Japanese flight helmets I have ever seen have Army or Navy insignia sewn to the front. They also have a label sewn inside.
